Can someone give me a clear explanation of 'double tagging' on some Canadian stamps. An example from my Unitrade catalogue is on stamp #1123.

Thx to all you wise ones out there!!!

re: Double Tagging - Canadian Stamps

According to a footnote in the Unitrade catalogue regarding #1123i - Double tagging: "A portion of the printing was produced with square tagging on all sides, PLUS vertical tab bars on top."

Liz, does Unitrade have a picture example of this? I have taken the UV lamp to my stamps with the double tagging, and I only see the box. I do not see any other vertical tagging at the top.

Michael - Then what you have are copies of #1123 NOT #1123i.

Unitrade does not have a picture example of #1123i. The stamp with the box tagging is GT4 and is #1123. All the stamps from this Capex 82 set have GT4 tagging except #1123i (double tagging) and #1125-T1 untagged (error).

Definitions of General Tagging
GT4 = General Tagging along all edges of stamp
GT3 = General Tagging on two opposite edges and one parallel bar through the middle of the stamp
GT2 = General Tagging on two opposite edges only
GTX = Special General Tagging for the 1987-91 Greet-More Christmas stamps - Appears along all sides of the illustration plus four vertical bars to the left of the illustration.During the years 1992-95 there is tagging on all white areas except within the illustration.

Illustrations and Explanations of Condition Grading, Cancellations, Tagging, Gums, Paper Types, Die Cuts, etc. etc. can be found in the Introduction Section at the front of the Unitrade Specialized Catalogue of Canadian Stamps. Constant Plate Varieties, Errors, Freaks and Oddities, etc. are listed throughout the catalogue.

Here is an illustration of what the tagging looks like on the 1987 36c parliament stamp, Unitrade 925Be. The 4-sided block tagging is in yellow, while the 2-bar side tagging is in green, which is on top of the block tagging.
