Canada #233 3c Deep Carmine Red King George VI, 1937-1942 Mufti Issue, A VFNH Example on Soft Vertical Wove Paper, Showing Dramatic Misperf

Sold out

A very fine centered (left to right) example of the 3c deep carmine red King George VI stamp from the 1937-1942 Mufti Issue, showing a dramatic misperf in which the perfs are shifted downward by almost 4 mm, causing the top frame to appear at the bottom, rather than the top. Printed on soft vertical wove paper that shows fine vertical mesh, and with a smooth cream gum that has a semi-gloss sheen. Unitrade does not list misperfs, but generally a misperf like this will sell for $75 or so in NH condition.  The stamp offered here grades 75 as follows:

Centering/margins: 45/70
Paper freshness: 5/5
Colour: 5/5
Impression: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
Perforations: 10/10
