Lot 304 Canada #9 7.5d Green, Queen Victoria, 1857 Pence Issue on Thick White Wove Paper
A simply stunning used example of this classic and rare stamp, with 4 full margins , although close at the lower left corner. Excellent colour, and impression. The Pembina CDS cancel is not genuine, as explained in the accompanying certificate, having been applied over top of a light pen cancellation. We feel that this is more of a technical point than anything, and it detracts little, if at all from the rarity and eye appeal of this stamp, which is exceedingly scarce in this condition.
Unitrade values this stamp at $5,000 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 pink 2019 VG Greene certificate, which states that the stamp is genuine in all respects, but has the cancellation added.
