Canada #7a 10d Dark Blue Jacques Cartier, 1857 Pence Issue on Thin, White Wove Paper
A lovely used example of this classic and rare stamp, with 4 full margins , although close at the upper left corner. Excellent colour, impression and a light, face-free cancellation that shows the full design. Unitrade identifies the #7a as being on thick, white opaque paper. This paper is white and somewhat translucent, but compared to the normal, thin transparent paper, it is thick. Unitrade values this stamp at $3,000 for VF-75. The example offered here grades VF-81 as follows:
Paper freshness: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
This example comes with a clear 2001 VG Greene certificate.
