Canada #80 (SG#159) 6c Deep Yellow Brown 1898-1902 Numeral Issue Vertical Wove Paper VF-75-J OG HR

SKU 222177647375

A very well centered and very fine mint OG HR example in the deep yellow brown shade (yellow brown, brown and bright brown shades are shown to the right for comparison only). On white vertical wove paper measuring 0.004" thick. A highly under-rated stamp as only 560,000 were issued. The gum is discoloured, being darker toward the middle of the stamp, but it is intact. It is just very heavily hinged. I would not recommend soaking or otherwise attempting to remove the hinge remnants so as not to ruin a perfectly attractive jumbo margined example of this stamp. Unitrade values a VF-75 OG example at $300. The stamp offered here grades 75-J as follows:

Centering/margins: 45/70 (jumbo)

Paper freshness: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Impression: 5/5

Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
