In my opinion, this "block" is actually two imperforate vertical pairs as the printed sheet was not vertically cut into two separate rolls as required.

This created horizontal pairs in error (SC 951a).

Additionally, the rows were not die cut either.

Canada's 2020 Unitrade catalogue values a imperfoarte pair at $225.00, so you have a minimum of $450.00 for the two pairs if sold separately and possibly much more leaving it as a block. A double production error.

This is Unitrade #951 coil stamp.

These stamps came in rolls that would be broken off.

Sometimes the score-line (to break the rolls) was shallow and sometimes it was missing.

Look closely - if you see a score-line it is a variety with some value. If you see no scoreline, it is a variety with more value.

Not listed as such but still worth something.
