Centennial New Centennial Discoveries
Updated: Dec 5, 2001

Dare we say that the 1967-1973 Centennial definitives are the most popular and studied set of modern-day Canadian stamps?

It is amazing that NEW discoveries are still being made, as evidenced by the publication of numerous new finds in the Centennial Definitives 1967-1973 book (illustrated at right)!

As new information comes to light on this fascinating series, it will be presented here.

    A new major error has been reported.

    BK64 miscut Booklet BK64 is the $1.50 booklet containing 25 copies of the 6c black Transportation, Die I. The normal booklet contains 2 labels in the first two positions of the booklet.

    Doug Karns has just provided an example with the 2 labels on the right side of the pane instead of the left side of the pane! This is a fantastic error to find some 21 years after it first appeared.

    Figure 856 on page 289 of the Centennial Definitives Series 1967-1973 book illustrates a pre-printing paper crease on the $1 Edmonton Oil Field stamp.

    The apparent 'mate' to this stamp (a left margin single) is illustrated as Lot 1561 on page 111 of the Ian Kimmerly Public Auction #107-108 being held Oct 17-18/2000.

    Cutting guidelines on the front and back covers of BK54 and BK55. These cutting lines are known on the Cameo booklet (BK52) with the Centennial cover so it is not too surprising that they also exist on the Centennial booklets.
