Set CU16 - The Arctic - L'Arctique - error card details

On the first example the eighth line of the text description states the icebreaker is called the "Sir John A. MacDonald", whilst on the second example the icebreaker is called the "John A. Macdonald".

It has not yet been ascertained if either is scarcer than the other. It would be much appreciated if collectors would email me to say which of these they have in order to find out which is scarcer.

Error card WITH Sir Error card WITHOUT Sir

Although the first Prime Minister of Canada was "Sir" the icebreaker was not. Also, Macdonald did not have a capital "d".
