1995 Two dollar Provincial Normal School, Canadian Bank Note printing, perf 13.3x13, an exceptional corner margin mint example showing the INVERTED ENGRAVED INSCRIPTIONS in error, well centered and in pristine condition. A sought-after modern invert, Extremely Fine, Never Hinged (Unitrade 1376b; catalogue value $12,000)
Only four sheets were discovered with the inverted inscriptions. A total of seventy stamps
shows this error, the remaining thirty are mostly without stamp design or show cutting guides and colour bars and are occasionally offered in se-tenant vertical pairs or strips of three. As a result of examples kept in se-tenant multiples, less than fifty examples of the fully printed stamps are still available, making it considerably rarer than the famous Seaway invert.
