Canada #88 (SG#172) 2c on 3c Bright Carmine-Red 1899 Surcharges XF-94 OG
An extremely fine mint OG example of this provisional issue in the bright carmine-red shade (dull rose -carmine, dull carmine-red, rose-carmine, deep bright carmine-red, deep rose scarlet, deep carmine-red, and carmine-red shades are shown to the right for comparison purposes only) that is perfectly centered within balanced, opposing margins. On vertical wove paper measuring 0.004" thick. Unitrade values a VF-75 OG example at $50. Worth considerably more in this stellar grade. The stamp offered here grades 94 as follows:
Paper freshness: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
I currently have two examples in stock as shown in the above scans. When ordering, please specify which one you would like.
