Here are2 more oddities..

First is a Scott 362 which as far as I know is the only Canadian stamp that has the "cent" before the denomination.



Here is a Scott 586b booklet that has black in the Queen's hair. Nothing is printed in black on any of the stamps.

Robert,
You had posted the 2-3/4 cancel before and ID'd it as a slogan machine cancel relating to minimum envelope size. Remember?

Opinion:
2 colours in gold? I'd suggest just detioration (Oxidation) , I have gold stamps where the ink has nearly turned black.

Copyright icon, I think I recall other stamps that have been prepared on the cusp of another year, and defy my searching the catalogue for the that year. (Perhaps the plate produce year and not issue date)

You make a good point rod222...it could be caused by what you said.

Robert

Here are colour irregularities associated with this Scott 2184 stamp.

Here is a oddity on a Scott 203 "World's Grain Exhibition and Conference" stamp...I have never on any Canadian stamp seen the Letter "1" with this design....Different.

Also, "Hym that found the new Isle"

The Beothuk were there already, numbering 700 or more.

Hi rod

I thought Cabot Cabot sailed out of Bristol on the small ship Matthew in May 1497, with a crew of 18 men. The expedition made landfall in North America on June 24.

The Beothuk was a group of indigenous people who lived on the island of Newfoundland. Beginning around 1500

Robert, re-read your history. The Beothuk were an indigenous people who moved to Newfoundland from Labrador around 1 AD.
