Now I have forward all this info to the links above and have receive one email back.....
Your stamp is similar to the block we had shown in attachment.
CANADA 996 var3 32c Nickel MISSING "l" of "Nickel" on right stamps in right margin block of 4. Only ONE sheet (10 Errors) known. Much rarer than TOTALLY MISSING SILVER errors of which 100+ are known. An outstanding error. Ex "JAL" collection 109132.0 VF NH CS Unlisted Our price: $950.00
Our block shows TWO examples like you used single and we sold it for the listed price in 2011 so that was $475 "each" for the two mint copies in that block. Your used single is missing a little more silver but is used so if I owned it I would price it at $400.00
You could send it to the V.G.Greene Foundation for a certificate of authenticity as this always help sell unusual items.

Greetings Mr. kacyds . You must remember that a positive "certification of authenticity" only verifies it is an error. It does not certify a "value" on the stamp, especially if you plan to sell it. However, you do have a written estimate (even if it is by email). . If you, or your heirs, might happen to want to sell/auction it off in the future, the certificate will definitely help justify your asking price. It definitely will not hurt. It all depends on how much you want to get rid of your forty bucks. . The good thing about getting the error certified is the possibility of have the it listed in major stamp catalogs. It's good in that it brings awareness to stamp collectors that the error exists and is out there to be found. (Kind of like free advertising.) It is a bad thing if a whole bunch of the errors are found and tips the scale in the wrong direction for you in the Supply-Demand department. . Personally, I'd swap forty smackers for a frame-able stamp certificate of authenticity. (It'll make a grand conversational starter.) . Respectfully,
Let me know, when you are coming this way. I would love to meet up with you. Oak Alley is about a half hour from my house.
What brings you this way???
Greetings Mr. kacyds . My darling young bride's niece is having a "destination wedding" and she chose Oak Alley. Why there? I have no idea. Originally, two years ago, it was planned for Cancun. But too many of her (and his) friends and relatives refused to go. (I was already packed and ready.) So they switched it to Oak Alley. They live near Davenport, Iowa and up until this last several months or so they lived in one of the Carolinas. They both have kin scattered from one side of the country to the next. So I reckon it's kind of fairly in the middle. . As usual, my lovely bride is in charge of our travel itinerary. I don't remember if the wedding is Friday or Saturday. But we'll be in Thibodoux on the tenth and there is a tour of a John Deere factory stuck in there sometime. (There's a long reason why.) That's all I know about it. . Respectfully,
Umm, the first one sounded a bit more postive than this latest email. Personally, I would spend the $40 for the same reasons Mr. Lee gave. And I'm from NY and have never figured out how long a NY minute is.
