EXTREMELY FINE. A SPECTACULAR AND EXTREMELY RARE COMPLETE SET OF THE CANADA 1897 JUBILEE ISSUE PLATE PROOFS ON INDIA IN PANES OF 50.

The Diamond Jubilee Issue of 1897 was Canada's first commemorative set. It was also the first issue supplied by the American Bank Note Company, Ottawa. The designs were by Lynwood Pereira and the portraits of the Queen were based on the famous Chalon vignette and the painting by Prof. Von Angeli of Vienna. (Bogg, p. 317). The -1/2c thru 8c values were printed in sheets of 100, while the 10c thru $5.00 values were printed in sheets of 50. Like the Columbian Issue of the United States, a full set of stamps was costly, setting the collector back $16.21-1/2. The plate proofs are scarce, with approximately 400 sets in total, including 300 sets that were released as part of the American Bank Note Company deaccession in 1990.
