Canada #82 8c Orange Queen Victoria, 1898-1902 Numeral Issue, A Fine CDS Used Example

Sold out

A well centered and very fine appearing, but fine CDS used example of the 8c orange Queen Victoria stamp from the 1898-1902 Numeral Issue, cancelled within a little over a month from issue on October 27, 1898. Printed on vertical wove paper. Unitrade values this stamp in this grade at $15. A difficult used stamp to locate this nice, as most would be heavily cancelled with large "R" registry cancels, or roller cancels. There is, a very light diagonal bend that is visible from the back, but not the front. However, this bend does reduce the grade from VF to fine. The stamp offered here grades 73 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: 8/10

Adjustment for very light diagonal bend: -5 points
