Street Scenes (1978-82)|
Updated Jan 5/02
Canadian street scenes debuted July 6, 1978 with the release of 3 values. A 60c value followed in 1982.
The 50c and 60c values are tagged; the 75c and 80c are not.
The 3 initial values (50c, 75, 80c) were printed by the British American Bank Note Company. The Canadian Bank Note printed the 60c value and a second printing of the 50c value (noticeable differences exist).
The 50c value has the only major error of these 4 stamps: missing inscriptions (dubbed "Ghost Town"). This value has many other minor errors, including kiss print, albino kiss print, doubling of brown inscriptions.
