Canada #86 2c Greenish Blue, Black and Carmine, Mercator Projection 1898 Imperial Penny Postage Issue, a Fine OG Corner Block Containing the Position 89 Re-Entry

Sold out

A fine OG lower right corner block of the 2c greenish blue, black and carmine Mercator Projection stamp from the 1898 Imperial Penny Postage Issue, showing the prominent re-entry from position 89, which shows as doubling in the letters "Canada Postage" and both numeral boxes. Regrettably there is a sealed "L" shaped tear in the upper right corner of the re-entry stamp. However the other three stamps are all sound, so we are estimating this as three fine hinged singles. Still a nice reference piece for the re-entry collector.  Unitrade values this block as 3 singles at $27. The block offered here grades 65 as follows:

Centering/margins: 35/70
Paper freshness: 5/5
Colour: 5/5
Impression: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
