My 2011 Unitrade Catalog has a note following the listing for #720 (30-cent) that describes a 'winter leaf' variety. My questions:
1) Do later editions continue to note this variety?
2) Does the variety include Scott #719 (25-cent)?
3) Does this stamp show what is considered the variety?

My 2014 Unitrade shows no variety listed for #719. There is a variety listed for #720.

JC:

Current Unitrade 2020 does not list a variety. It is a minor colour shift. No value other than the 20-cent for a used stamp without the colour shift.

I have a similar example of the 25c colour shift, and also one in the opposite direction.

I am intrigued, though, about the cut off C on Canada. Is your copy creased, or is the bottom of the C merely blunted?

It is not a crease, but a very thin scrape. Something with a sharp edge was dragged across the face of the stamp. It removed the ink without cutting the paper. A faint impression is seen going across the stamp when viewed from the back.
