Canada #626 G2e 8c Multicoloured, Dove, 1973 Christmas Issue, a Very Fine Used Single, on MF/HF Paper Showing 3-Bar Tag Error

Sold out

A well centered and very fine used single of the 8c dove stamp from the 1973 Christmas issue, printed on MF/HF paper, showing the scarce 3-bar tag error, consisting of the normal 2 bar tagging, plus a light wide bar down the centre.  

Unitrade does not list this type of tagging variety, but Rose does, and lists the stamp at $60 for a mint example, though generally there is little difference in value between mint and used for these types of varieties, due to their scarcity. The stamp offered here grades 80 as follows:

Centering/margins: 40/60 
Paper freshness: 5/5 
Colour: 5/5 
Impression: 5/5 
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5 
Perforations: 10/10

Cancellation: 10/10
