Lot 65 Canada #53 3c Bright Rose Queen Victoria, 1897 Diamond Jubilee Issue, Two Fine Used Examples With Unusual Cancellations
Two fine used examples of the 3c bright rose Queen Victoria from the 1897 Diamond Jubilee Issue with unusual cancellations. One cancellation is a cork star, while the other is some type of grid cancel. Both are unusual for this issue, which usually is cancelled with either CDS's, flag cancels or machine cancels.
Unitrade does not list fancy cancels on these stamps. Our best estimate of the value is $10. The stamps offered here grade between 65 and 70 as follows:
Paper Freshness: 5/5
