Canada #503 6c Multicoloured 1969 Christmas Issue, A Very Fine NH LR Corner Single Showing a Dramatic Shift of the Red

Sold out

A very fine NH lower right corner single of the 6c children praying stamp from the 1969 Christmas Issue, showing a dramatic 1/2 mm downward shift of the red colour, resulting in it appearing below the black frameline. While very minor shifts of less than 1/10th of a mm or 1/5th mm are not that uncommon, a 1/2 mm shift is quite spectacular on this issue.  

    Unitrade does not list this shift, but our estimate of its value is $10.   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
