Modern stamp paper
High-value Architecture (1989-96)|
Updated Jan 14/99)
High-value Architecture designs first appeared in May 1989. Since that time, 6 different designs were issued. All but one of the designs is available in more than one variety.
Different printers and different papers have resulted in more than a doubling of the number of collectable varieties.
Three different paper manufacturers have supplied paper: Harrison, Peterborough, and Coated Paper. With that said, paper identification is not required to differentiate between the various printings.
Some consider the 6 values to be two different series. This is due to the noticeable size difference.
The two "series" (ie. different sized-stamps) are listed separately, each having various identification tables:
Some significant errors have occurred on these 6 high-value Architecture stamps, including missing colour, imperforate, and inverted colour errors! Colour and perforation shifts also exist on some values.
