Lot 220 Canada #RN32, RG653, RC386, RC770, RC791 1/9 lb, 5 and 20 Black and Red and Grey Green and Red Monoplane Over Mackenzie River 1935 Cigar, Tobacco and Cigarette Excise Tax, Fine Used Examples
Fine used examples of the 1/9 lb, 5 and 20 black and red and grey green and red from the 1935 Cigar, Tobacco and Cigarette Excise Tax. The unoverprinted 20 cigarettes has a small thin, and the small format surcharged 20 cigarettes has a vertical crease. Still fine for these, as most used examples of these stamps will have thins, creases, or both, since they were used to seal packages of cigarettes, cigar boxes or bags of tobacco.
