Canadian Stamp News (CSN) had an article on these stamps in the January 5-18, 2021 issue (Volume 45, Number 19) on page 8.

Only Picture Postage(tm) stamps created by Canada Post, and sold to collectors in mint (unused) condition through Canada Post outlets ..." are listed.

This "Thanks Merci!" stamp does not meet this criteria. It was not sold by Canada Post to the general public at Canada Post outlets, just like thousands and thousands of other Picture Postage designs created for individuals and other companies.

Would not the above criteria also affect stamps such as Unitrade 1534ii and 1535ii?

Jogil: you are comparing apples to oranges. There is no similarity between these items.

The Christmas stamps you are referring to have been discussed already. I am not going to rehash this yet again.

Love Robin as much as I do, I agree with jogil. The stolen unissued Christmas stamps should not be listed in Unitrade. Nor should the 1 Gentians (#705 & 781) which were privately overprinted and say right on the selvage "Do not use for postage". Curiously, not ALL the overprints are listed, especially the inappropriate ones about Trudeau.

I will not reproduce them here, but they were offered by Ian Kimmerly on eBay a while back as Unitrade #705iv.

sak:

There are several items throughout the modern issues that have a footnote saying something like "These listings will likely be removed in a future edition." (this quote is from the footnote under 705).

One of these years I really should get around to doing that (i.e. removing certain listings that have been around for years and years and really shouldn't have been listed in the first place).

I have a number of items on the "2022 to do" list; your comment reminded me to include this topic on that list. Thanks!
