Van Dam AL8

Van Dam AL8

25c Yellow (Black Inscriptions) Alberta Law Stamp, a very rare example originating from Plate 2 (Bileski) where the background print is composed of six scroll blocks facing north east instead of south west (as Plate 1), considerably scarcer than the elusive 25c grey (black) which coincidentally was also printed with Plate 2 background. The second plate on the 25c yellow was documented as early as 1922 by Senator Calder (Collectors Club of New York, Vol. 1, No. 4, pages 138-145) as Type III and assigned its own number in his Reference List (No. 8). Natural straight edge on two sides and showing the constant small “2” in upper left “25” (Position 3). According to K. Bileski only five examples (one mint and four used) exist – a fabulous exhibition piece for an advanced revenue collection, Very Fine (Van Dam AL8 unlisted Plate; Ed Zaluski ABL10-Z2 listed Background Plate II and annotated as being “ER” – Extremely Rare)
