Canada #68 (SG#144) 2c Deep Reddish Purple 1897-1898 Maple Leaf Issue SUP-98 LH

SKU 322183764703

Near perfection! An almost mathematically centered mint LH example of this value on vertical wove paper, measuring 0.0045" thick, which is thicker than usually found (most measure 0.0035-0.004"). In addition, the shade is a distinct reddish purple shade. This shade is scarcer than the normal deep purple that is shown here for comparison only. Unitrade values a VF-75 OG example at $80. However, that value is meaningless for a stamp of this calibre, which should be worth $200-$250. The example offered here grades 98 as follows:

Centering/margins: 68/70

Paper freshness: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Impression: 5/5

Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5

Perforations: 10/10
