In year 2000 The Revenue Society of Great Britain commissioned Gerald King to produce an “essay” of what the Canada 20 cents revenue stamp from year 1876 would look like if the design had been continued in to the reign of Elizabeth II.
The result was attached to the menu cards of the 82nd Philatelic Congress of Great Britain banquet held in London 8-10 September 2000.
The stamps were produced in sheets of 5 stamps and sheets of 6 stamps. The sheets of 5 stamps had the center stamp inverted. The sheets of 6 stamps had two rows with 3 stamps each. All the stamps are overprinted with the initials “PCGB” (short for Philatelic Congress of Great Britain) or with the text “Specimen”.
I don´t have any of the actual stamps sheets of 5 or 6 stamps, but I have a couple of different signed proofs for the 6 stamps sheets (one regular proof and one cancelled proof ). Furthermore I have 4 signed color trial proofs and a single specimen stamp. Please see pictures below.
