SKU Lot143

A very fine used example of the 2c deep scarlet Ubique stamp from the 1919-1923 Trail of the Caribou Issue, showing an interesting "January" overprint in black.. Comb perf. 14.1 x 13.9. I am uncertain as to what the origin of these overprints is. I have only come across them on the 2c value and I have seen them for other months. Not listed in Unitrade, but not common either. My estimated value is $5. The stamp offered here grades 80 as follows:

Centering/margins: 40/60
Paper freshness: 5/5
