Canada #69 (SG#145) 3c Carmine 1897-1898 Maple Leaf Issue Vertical Wove Paper VF-77 OG

SKU 222177913530

A nicely centered example of this value, printed on vertical wove paper measuring 0.0035" thick, with nice deep colour. All of the gum, except for a small area at the upper left of the stamp remains, although there is a fair amount of disturbance from previous hinging. There is a small inconsistency in paper thickness at the upper left, which looks like a stain, but isn't, and a tiny paper inclusion in the left margin opposite the middle of the oval. Unitrade values a VF-75 OG single at $100. The stamp offered here grades 77 as follows:

Centering/margins: 50/70

Paper freshness: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Impression: 5/5

Absence of paper flaws: 2/5

Perforations: 10/10
