Lot 140 Canada #107-ii, 108-c, MR4 2c, 3c & 2c + 1c Yellow Green & Brown King George V, 1911-1928 Admiral & War Tax Issue, 22 Mostly VG Singles, Shade Reference Lot

22 Mostly VG singles of the 2c, 3c & 2c + 1c yellow green & brown King George V from the 1911-1928 Admiral & War Tax Issue, shade reference lot.

The stamp shades are all identified on the back of the 102 cards. They aren't graded, but are VG on average. We are selling them as a reference tool.

We estimate the value of this lot at $5, purely as a reference tool. Unitrade's treatment of the Admiral issue is quite simplified in the sense that only the broad shade groups are listed, and the retouched frameline is only listed on a few values, even though most of the first colours of each value can be found with both retouched frame and normal frame in the upper right spandrel of the design. In terms of shades, what we have done is to sort the stamps into each identifiable shade, name them using the Gibbons Stamp Colour Key and then attempt to assign each shade to one of the groups listed in Unitrade. This is fairly easy to do when you have all the shades identified and laid next to one another. The difference between the retouched and redrawn frameline is another source of confusion for many collectors. Basically, the normal frame, from the early printings has horizontal shading lines that terminate in a uniform straight line, with no vertical line connecting them. The retouched frameline is a light vertical line which has been added to join all the horizontal shading lines. It is generally only found on wet printings. The re-drawn frameline on the other hand is a thicker, heavier line and is only found on dry printings.
