Canada #1969 48c Multicoloured, 2003 Year of the Ram Issue, A VF Used Example Showing Dramatic Misperf Resulting in 3-Bar Tag

Sold out

A VF used example of the 48c multicoloured stamp from the 2003 Year of the Ram Issue, showing a dramatic misperf that results in 3-bar, rather than 4-bar tagging.  The horizontal perforations are shifted downward 3 mm, which results in the tagging variety. This comes from the Del Peters collection according to notes made by John Jamieson of Saskatoon Stamp Centre. It was valued by Peters at $50. Included is a normal mint example for comparison.
