Unitrade Specialized Catalogue of Canadian Stamps
Errata (and clarifications) to the 2007 Edition

Updated Jan 31/07

Report a mistake to the editor.

Despite what some think, every possible effort is made to keep the number of mistakes down to a minimum. As I have said many, many times ... even the smallest of mistakes (no matter how trivial) is not acceptable. I thank those who have the time to read the catalogue from cover to cover with a magnifying glass looking for even the smallest mistake.

In some instances, the mistake has been in the catalogue for years, based on data received from Canada Post bulletins. Your editor does not own the necessary examples of every stamp and configuration and thanks those readers who are passing on the correct details.

All reported mistakes have been corrected for the next (2008?) edition.
