Recently sent to teacards.com by Paul Korol, this unusual
Canadian card from Animals of North America (Roland 'narrow'
variety) is missing the number.
Unfortunately a previous owner of this particular example
has written the correct card number in pen, in the space
where the printed number should appear.
Discussion with other collectors was not able to clarify
whether this was a one-off error, a printing mistake which
may affect several cards, or if indeed this card had been
tampered with - although it's condition suggests it has
However, since this image was put onto the teacards.com
web site another collector, Don Scanlon, has very kindly
sent in an image of another card which appears to be identical
to this one. The card number, series and variety all matching.
This indicates that this may be a geniune printing error
which could affect this particular card from this printing
and which could crop up again in the future.
If other collectors should find they have this card any
images would be appreciated.
