Set Of Three Canada Post 1976 Prototypes For The Olympic Stamp Program Rare:
All stampreplicas are of the same design, the 10¢ + 5¢ Rowing. The first is in Bronze, marked "BRONZE" on the reverse, with a marked weight of 16g. The actual weight is 16.33 gr. It is serial numbered as 200000. The second is in silver or silver plated, the fields for the metal and weight indications on the reverse are blank, as is the serial number box. The actual weight is 19.67 gr. The last one is gold plated, the underlying metal is uncertain.
The reverse space for metal indication, weight and serial number are also blank. The actual weight is 15.78 gr.
These pieces are most likely prototypes, produced for examination by the minister or officials responsible for final approval of the project.
Surely very rare. Possibly unique.
