Canadian Tagging Errors:
Tag Types

Canadian phosphor tagging has been classified into Tag Types. Tagging errors, the result of either shifts of the tagging, shifts of the perforations (or die cutting on self-adhesive stamps), or the lack of tagging, result in sub types of these major classifications:
 

Winnipeg tagging
W1: one tag bar down the middle of the stamp.
