Canada #109 (SG#248) 3c Scarlet Admiral Issue Die 1, Paper With No Mesh 0.004" Thick SUP-98 LH
A nearly perfectly centered and superb fine mint OG LH example of the 3c scarlet (carmine in Unitrade), die 1 Admiral stamp from the 1911-1928 Admiral Issue. Printed on white vertical wove paper showing no visible mesh, and measuring 0.0040" thick. The gum is a smooth, satin cream. Unitrade values a VF-75 OG single at $30, but that value is not relevant for a superb example like this, as Admirals grading above VF-84 are seldom offered. The stamp offered here grades 98 as follows:
Paper freshness: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
I currently have two stamps in stock that are this grade.You will receive one of the above two stamps of your choice.
