Canada 1564

     In 1995 (April 15) Canada issued a set of four stamps featuring four of the many wildlife species that migrate between Canada and Mexico each year. Each stamp features a picture of the species,  symbolic migration routes (green going south, brown going north), and a map of the habitat range in Canada and Mexico.
     On the stamp that features the Belted Kingfisher there is a typographical error; the letter "f" is missing from the word faune, "fauna" or "wildlife."

SCN 1564

     The error was noticed and a little over a month after the stamps were issued a corrected stamp (1567) was issued (the original stamp was not withdrawn).
