Canada #53i (SG#126) 3c Pale Rose 1897 Diamond Jubilee Issue VF-78-J OG

SKU 322183236778

A post office fresh and very fine OG of this popular commemorative issue in the pale rose shade, with jumbo sized margins. Although Unitrade prices the shades the same, I can tell you that the pale rose and dull rose shades are much scarcer than the more common deep rose and bright rose shades. There is a tiny natural paper inclusion in the left margin, about mid way up the stamp. Unitrade values this stamp at $40 for VF-75 OG, although it should be worth much more because of the margins and the scarcer shade. The example offered here grades 78-J as follows:

Centering/margins: 50/70 (jumbo)

Paper freshness: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Impression: 5/5

Absence of visible paper flaws: 3/5

Perforations: 10/10
