A well centered and VFNH upper left field stock block of the 3c deep dull reddish violet stamp of the 1962-1967 Cameo Issue, printed on lightly ribbed low fluorescent flecked paper, and Winnipeg tagged with bars of deep strength. Perf. 11.9 with a streaky dex gum that has a semi-gloss sheen. 

The tagging on this issue does exhibit some differences that are not specifically mentioned in Unitrade. The main one is that the strength varies from light, which is almost invisible, to moderate, which is visible, but not dark, and finally to dark, in which the bands appear deep yellow. The width of the bands also varies from the standard width of between 8-9 mm to a smaller size of 7 mm, which was applied at the outer columns of the panes of some, but not all printings. 

This block has wide selvedge on the top and left, so it comes from the upper left pane. 

Unitrade lists a corner block of this tagging variety at $27.50. The block offered here grades 75 as follows:

Centering/Margins 45/70

Paper freshness: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Impression: 5/5
