Canada/Other : If people insist on using a number at least get it right!

There is one Canada BOB stamp I need to complete my basic set of War Tax stamps, or at least the main ones from Scott's. I even have a pasted up strip of four of two each of MR7 and MR7a, a real rarity. The only one I'm missing is MR2Di, I realize if you don't use Scott's and collect Canada war tax stamps this is gobbledygook! I find it occasionally on various sites and half the time the stamp is misidentified. Hence, the title of the post!!

Harvey, to be sure people discuss the correct numbered stamp, why not post an image of the correct stamp that you require? I'm sure you must have a catalogue that shows that particular stamp.
Yes, I do know the Canadian War Tax stamps. Unfortunately, I am not like you, I do not have all the ones I'd like to have .... money!!!

The main sites I'm talking about are ones like E-Bay where you quite regularly see stamps wrongly identified. There are only a handful of sellers there I buy from. The stamp I want is the 50 cent one and quite often the 20 cent one is given its number. Also leaving off the "i" gives a different stamp, you have to be careful.

Yup, that's the one I want! But that's out of my league as well.I'd be happy with a used single for a couple hundred to finish the war tax stamps! Someday, you never know!!
