Style #4600

Maple was originally named
"Pride." Rumor has it, that
due to the confusion
involving the well-known
slogan, "Pride of America,"
the name was changed, but
not before the first 10,000
(originally thought to be
3,000) slipped out with the
incorrect tush tag.
Although most mistakes are
not acknowledged with
higher values, this one is
expected to skyrocket in

Maple was produced
specifically to honor the
Canadian Independence Day.
Shipped exclusively to
Canada and displaying the
Canadian flag, one has to
wonder how many Maples
actually stayed in Canada
versus how many found their
homes in American
collections! Canadian
retailers caught on
quickly, charging up to
$200 American dollars plus
15% Canadian taxes plus
shipping. All Maples and
Maple/Prides have the
second Canadian tush tag
