Modern stamp paper
Low-value Mammals (1988-92)|
Updated Jan 5/02
The low-value Wildlife stamps offer a nice little challenge to the collector. While only 7 face-different values were issued, different tagging, paper, and perforations have produced nearly double that many varieties.
Two of the stamps appeared unannounced by Canada Post - these command a slight premium over the "normal" issues.
All of the values were printed in panes of 100. The 1c-6c stamps were all issued untagged. The 10c and 25c values exist untagged and "block" tagged (tag around the edges of the stamp).
Four of the varieties are determined by the paper manufacturer - either Slater or Coated paper. Click here for a discussion of identifying modern-day Canadian postage stamp paper.
