The Wearing of the Green: Plates and States of the Canada 1898 One Cent Numeral Issue

Peter Spencer

108 pages, 8.5x11, spiral bound.
Colour C$ 27.00 [ISBN 0-919854-76-1].

The Wearing of the Green: Plates and States of the Canada 1898 One Cent Numeral Issue follows closely on the 2005 release of Peter Spencer's Pretty in Pink: The Plates and States of the Canada 1898 Two Cent Numeral Issue. Again using today's technology to great advantage, the author has closely examined the One-cent value of the Queen Victoria Numeral Issue to advise readers how to determine the plate of individual copies of the first stamp in this popular set.

The Wearing of the Green, the first major plating study of this issue, should form an excellent basis for further studies of this stamp and possible discoveries which readers may make as they examine their holdings. This volume contains a ten-page major study of the renowned "10 cent on 1 cent foreign entry" with a well-illustrated startling new discovery that there are actually three of these, not one or two as previously believed. If you are looking for something intriguing on which to spend your free philatelic time, this book may point the way.
