SKU 322072746405
A  very well centered and very fine mint  OG example of the 20c deep carmine-red special delivery wet printing stamp from the 1922-1927 special delivery issue. Printed on vertical wove paper with coarse vertical mesh.   Unitrade only lists the wet printing in the scarlet shade, which is surprising because it also exists in shades of lake and carmine red, which are scarcer. Unitrade values a VF-75 OG example at $250. The stamp offered here grades VF-82 as follows: Margins/centering: 54/70 Paper freshness: 5/5 Colour: 5/5 Impression: 5/5 Absence of visible paper flaws: 3/5 (small natural inclusion in the margin at upper left) Perforations: 10/10
