Canada #82xx 8c Brownish Orange Queen Victoria, 1898-1902 Numeral Issue, VG Used Example of a Possible Unlisted Precancel Style

Sold out

A fine appearing, but VG used example of the 8c brownish orange Queen Victoria stamp from the 1898-1902 Numeral Issue, cancelled with what appears to be an unlisted variation of the Walburn style "T" bar precancel. This example, in addition to the bars has a repeating "x" inside the bars. I have examined it carefully for signs that the "X''s were struck separately, and cannot tell for certain. However, no style like this is listed in Walburn anywhere that I could see.  Unitrade values this stamp in the fine grade at $20, so VG should be worth $10.  The stamp offered here grades 60 as follows:

Centering/margins: 25/60
Paper freshness: 5/5
Colour: 5/5
Impression: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
Perforations: 5/10

Cancellation: 10/10
