Canada #E2a (SG#S4) 20c Carmine Lake Special Delivery Wet Printing, a VFOG Example
A very fine OG example of the 20c carmine lake special delivery wet printing stamp from the 1922-1927 special delivery issue. Printed on horizontal wove paper with no visible mesh. Unitrade only lists the wet printing in the scarlet shade, but in fact, the wet printing is also found in very deep carmine red and lake shades as well, which are scarcer than the scarlet shade.
Unitrade values a VF-75 OG example at $300. The stamp offered here grades VF-80 as follows:
Paper freshness: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
