Canada #MR2Bi 5c Dark Blue King George V, 1911-27 Admiral Issue, a Fine Appearing But VG used Example of the Inland Revenue War Tax Overprint
A fine appearing but VG used example of the 5c dark blue Admiral war tax stamp from the 1911-1928 Admiral issue, with the Inland Revenue War Tax overprint. Printed on white vertical wove paper with no visible mesh. Unfortunately the stamp has a light corner crease affecting the UR corner that reduces the grade from fine to VG.
Unitrade values a F-65 mint example at $40, so VG should be worth $20. The stamp offered here grades 55 as follows:
Paper freshness: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
Adjustment for corner crease: -10 points
