Canada #240 3c Carmine King George VI 1937-1942 Mufti Issue Very Fine Mint NH Coil Pair on Horizontal Wove Paper

Sold out

A well centered and very fine mint NH pair of 3c carmine-red King George VI coil stamps from the 1937-1942 Mufti Issue . This issue is found printed on several different types of paper, including a horizontal wove paper that shows vertical ribbing, and a soft, fibrous horizontal wove paper that is usually found with a smooth cream gum. This generally comes from the printings made toward the end of this issue's life, as it matches the paper used for the early printings of the War issue coils.

The pair is printed on stiffer smooth horizontal wove paper with deep coffee cream gum with a satin sheen.
