Two very fine used examples of the second Ottawa printing of the 2c deep green and 2c grass green Queen Victoria stamps from the 1870-1897 Small Queen Issue. All stamps are perf. 12, and each is printed on a slightly different paper or shade. On the left, we have a late printing in the deep green shade on the newsprint-like paper and on the right a grass-green shade on the poorer quality horizontal wove that was in use earlier in the period. Neither has a medallion position dot, so these likely come from printings made after 1891. Unitrade values two VF-75 used singles at $5. The stamps offered here grade 80 and 75 as follows:

Margins/centering: 40/60, 35/60

Paper freshness: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Impression: 5/5

Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
