Modern stamp paper
Maple Leaf (2003-2004)|
Updated Jan 17/10
These were only out for 1 short year but provided many varieties.
The date shown is the date of issue of that specific variety. A "blank" means the item does not exist.
The 49c Leaf coil was originally released in vertical rolls of 100 stamps with a gutter every 23 stamps; the reprint (2 types) was a horizontal roll of 100 with a gutter every 10 stamps. The design of the reprint is slightly different from the original - the green stem on the right side extends beyond the leaf on the original. The reprint was reprinted; the first reprint has a darker blue background compared with the second reprint (Nov 2004).
The reprinted 49c Leaf coils can also be found with minute paper adhesions joining the adjacent stamps.
The 80c and $1.40 Leaf coils were originally released in horizontal rolls of 50 stamps with a gutter every 23 stamps; the reprints were a vertical roll of 50 with a gutter every 10 stamps.
The gutters on the reprinted coils have five Maple Leaf colour "dots", indicating each of the colours used to print the stamps.
