I have Unitrade's Canada specialty catalog and they seem to be the most in depth. However, for the stamp in this pic, I have two things that Unitrade does not mention.

1) No mention of one impetrate side.
2) No mention of an apparent ink issue. Odd lines shooting out from the lower right of the left numeral.

Any thoughts from my Canadian collectors?Image Not Found

re: Another Canada...GeorgeV Arch issue

I suspect that the straight edge equates to this stamp being a right side margin copy. The "hairlines" on the left 5 likely are covered by Unitrade in their introduction to the Admirals issue (immediately prior to the individual listings), namely the comment that "many re-entries exist on Admiral stamps, but only a few of the major ones are actually listed in the catalogue." This likely fits the recent discussion of "flyspecking" and there are likely many small deviations in the course of printings of this stamp.

The straight-edge is a natural straight-edge. The stamp was printed in sheets of 400, then cut into panes of 100. Picture the sheet two panes across and two paned down. The cuts were made in the centre, vertically and horizontally.

re: Another Canada...GeorgeV Arch issue

Some people collect stamps with straight edges just for fun, because I don't think there is any real monetary increase. But a page of them looks really interesting as part of a collection. I started picking up a few just for interest sake.

Mais non, mon ami
That depend on what you collect and how eply you ant to do so.
For instance, many Machin stamps were printed in booklets with such straight edges and a few are cataloged and sold for a premium over a similar issue with four perfect perforations.
You are correct, however, US collectors do not favor examples with one or, heaven forfend, two straight edges.
Some foolish collectors, such as me, try to acquire, reassemble, and mount, of complete postally used examples of a booklet panes of such silly partly imperf stamps.
There is no explaining what otherwise rational people collect.
There is, or was, a club of people who collect samples of barbed wire and proudly display examples of rare lengths on varnished backing boards.
And then, there are archeologists who gather, examine and preserve examples of thousand year old scat.

How about THAT !
