Canada #101 (SG#193) 10c Deep Reddish Purple Quebec Tercentenary Fine Mesh Paper - VF-79 Used

SKU 322169129444

A beautiful, well centered and very fine used example of the 10c deep reddish purple "Quebec in 1700" stamp from the 1908 Quebec Tercentenary Issue. Printed on vertical wove paper showing fine vertical mesh. Light, March 1922 CDS cancel, which leaves the design completely clear - a rare occurrence on a stamp that is almost always found heavily cancelled. 2016 Unitrade values a VF-75 used example at $200. As stated in Unitrade, stamps grading above VF-75 are scarce and worth a significant premium. This is the second finest 10c Quebec Tercentenary I have ever handled.
