I've decided, since picking up Canada stamps is getting difficult, to expand into varieties (or errors) and booklet panes. I am wondering if people prefer the panes over the booklets because so many of the booklets were produced with several different covers. Or do booklet collectors just go for one cover out of multiple choices. My cut off will be 1988 as it is for the rest of Canada but, if I remember right, many of the series of booklet panes come with at least 10 different pictures on the cover. I'm just curious if most booklet (BK code) collectors collect one design or go for all of them. That would be quite a task! Just curious, again ...

re: Expanding Canadian collection

My suggestion would be to start out with one booklet of each issue and if you found this was not challenging enough try to find a complete set of booklets that were issued with multiple cover designs and/or different cover colours, counting marks, tagging variations, paper types, etc.

A real challenge is the 1967-73 Centennial Definitives series! I still have a few pages of these MNH that I need to try and identify.

Yes, you do remember correctly. Many of the series of booklets were released with at least 10 different pictures on the covers. In addition to the different covers many were also released with a different coloured cover, plus MANY different paper types.

Good Luck!

re: Expanding Canadian collection

I decided to just go with the booklet panes and not bother with paper types and multiple covers. Except for the early material it is quite doable and doesn't take huge amounts of room. IMHO a douzen or so different booklet covers is not that important to me - the stamps are what matters. And I don't really want to get caught up in that Centennial series any more than just the basic panes.
