Canadian Varieties - Overview
Varieties are found in all six stamps of the 1935 Silver Jubilee issue. They occur most frequently in the 1 cent stamp. The 3 cent stamp has the fewest number of identified varieties even though twice as many (60,000,000) were printed compared to the 1 cent.
Most authors describe major and minor varieties. They have also used a system of indicating the particular stamp by a number. I have not made these distinctions. Varieties are described according to the Plate number, the sheet location on the plate and by Row and Column number.
I have consolidated the listings identified by the below people into a single list. The bulk of the information comes from the book by Hans Reiche. A special thanks to Don Wilson of the Saskatoon Centrewho provided me with most of the scans.
Bond, RA. The Canadian Silver Jubilees. Earl H. Vincent. Acton, Ontario. 1954
