Canada #175 (SG#301) 20c Brownish Vermilion Harvesting Wheat 1930-35 Arch Issue VF-80J LH
A well centered and very fine mint LH example of the 20c brownish vermilion Harvesting Wheat stamp from the 1930-1935 Arch Issue, with jumbo margins. Vertical wove paper with no visible mesh and cream gum with a glossy sheen, which suggests it is a printing from 1933-1934. Unitrade values a VF-75 OG single at $70. However, examples with margins like this are very scarce, and are worth a significant premium. The stamp offered here grades VF-80-J OG as follows:
Margins/centering: 50/70 (jumbo)
Paper freshness: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
Note any vertical line shown in the scan is the edge of the acetate strip that the stamp was resting inside on the stockcard. .
