A very fine used example of the 5c deep blue King Edward VII stamp from the 1903-1911 King Edward VII Issue, showing a major re-entry. This is not the listed major re-entry, but appears to be the re-entry from position 3 of the lower pane, as shown on Trimble's website. Most of the design is doubled, including (1) the inner framelines at lower left, (2) most lines of the beard, (3) the horizontal lines of the oval at lower left and (4) nearly all letters of "Canada Postage", except the "C" and "AG.
