Canada #101 10c Deep Purple Quebec in 1700 1908 Quebec Tercentenary Issue A Beautiful CDS Used Example

Sold out

A well centered and very fine CDS example of the 10c deep purple Quebec in 1700 stamp from the 1908 Quebec Tercentenary Issue, with jumbo margins. Cancelled with an October 13, 1908 Halifax CDS cancel. The "8" of the cancel has embossed the paper where the cancel was struck, but does not break it, so there is no impact on the grade. Unitrade values this stamp in this grade at $200. This is a very attractive and scarce used example of this stamp, of which only 500,000 were issued. Most used examples are either heavily roller cancelled, or have heavy "R" cancels. The stamp offered here grades 80 as follows:

Centering/margins: 40/60
Paper freshness: 5/5
Colour: 5/5
Impression: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
Perforations: 10/10

Cancellation: 8/10
