Lot 363 Canada #CLP7 1928 ($1) Red on White Moose Jaw Flying Club Semi Official Issue, mint lightly hinged, fresh and very fine. A very rare stamp in this condition, as only 200 stamps were printed, and 116 were used on cover, with two strips of five known, leaving a potential 29 stamps remaining. Very rarely is this stamp ever offered, especially in this lovely condition. Unitrade CV$3,500.
Lot 6 Canada #2TCi 6d Consort Trial Colour Plate Proof in Red Purple, a full sheet of 100 on India paper, showing the dramatic “burr on forehead” in position 43 (only listed in Unitrade as being on #13, but is now known on other Consort printings).
