BRC Fruit Trees checklist
The medium-value fruit trees first made their appearance December 27, 1991. Twelve different designs have appeared in both sheet (panes of 50) and booklet (panes of 5) forms.
As postal rates increased on an almost annual basis, three new values were issued on four different occassions: a USA rate (48c-52c), second step rate (65c-71c), and international rate (84c-90c).
All but 2 of these values exist in more than one form, whether it be a perforation change, different paper, or tagging styles:
- perforations are either 13.1x13.1 (perf 13) or 14.4x13.8 (perf 14 1/2 x 14)
- the 88c value comes with either block tagging or 3-bar tagging
- three different paper types exist: Coated, Harrison, and Peterborough. Click here for a discussion of identifying modern-day Canadian postage stamp paper.
- 8 values come in booklet forms (the USA and international-rate values)
[ This is a "wide" table, by necessity - too many varieties! ]
