Canada #60i (SG#135) 50c Deep Dull Ultramarine 1897 Diamond Jubilee Issue VF-84 CDS

SKU 222178018911

A fantastic used example of this elusive and challenging high value, whose colour did not react well to cancellation ink, generally. This example has beautiful deep colour, is perfectly centered amid balanced opposing margins, and an unobtrusively struck Toronto Split ring cancellation that is dated on Christmas day in 1898!. Only 100,000 of this value was printed and issued in 1897 and to find a used example of this calibre is challenging indeed. Unitrade values a VF-75 example at $275. The stamp offered here grades VF-84 as follows:

Centering/margins: 44/60

Paper freshness: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Impression: 5/5

Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5

Perforations: 10/10

Cancellation: 10/10
