Lot 458 Canada #720var 30c Light Greyish Purple & Multicoloured Red Oak, 1977-1982 Medium Value Tree Definitives, Two VFNH Singles Showing The Winter Leaves Variety, Printed in Slightly Different Background Shades

Two VFNH examples of the 30c Red Oak from the 1977-1982 Medium Value Tree Definitives, showing the “Winter Leaves” variety, in which the red colour ends significantly short of the leaf edges all around, whereas the normal stamp shows far less area not covered by the red colour. This is resulting from a slight colour shift, though the visual impact is much greater than one would expect. Both are printed in slightly different background shades, with one stamp being slightly darker than the other.
