Lot 288 Canada #101 10c Purple Violet Quebec in 1700, 1908 Quebec Tercentenary Issue, A Good Unused Example
A good unused example of the 10c purple violet Quebec in 1700 from the 1908 Quebec Tercentenary Issue. This example has two faults, which are accounted for in the grading breakdown. First, there is a small crease-tear in the upper margin, affecting 2 perfs, which has been flattened out, and there is a second crease affecting the lower right corner. Still, a presentable example of this scarce stamp.
Unitrade values this at $12.50, based on 1/8th the value of the listed fine grade. Usually unused is worth 40-50% of OG and each drop in grade reduces the value by 50%. So, for two grades below fine and no gum, this would translate into approximately 1/8th the value of fine OG. The stamp offered here grades 45 as follows:
Paper Freshness: 5/5
Absence of Visible Paper Flaws: 0/5
Adjustment for mentioned faults: -10 points.
