Canada Stamp #1534ii - Choir (1994) 52¢
UNISSUED 52¢ denomination

SKU: CAN-1534II
Mint - Very Fine Never Hinged (M-VFNH)
Very rare unissued 52¢ stamp from the 1994 Christmas issue! The regular stamp (#1534) has a 50¢ denomination, which was the active USA rate at the time. This 52¢ was printed in anticipation of a rate change increase, which was later not approved. Interestingly it was also printed on the same Coated paper as the booklet variant (#1534a), but the regular 50¢ was printed on Peterborough paper!

Description

This stamp was produced for a proposed 50¢ to 52¢ rate increase which was not approved. A few of these 52¢ stamps somehow got out of the post office and into private hands. A very rare modern variety.
