CANADA Sc #41i (1888) – 3c Deep Rose Carmine Small Queen Gazette Printing XF
Out of stock
Description3c deep rose carmine Small Queen, Montreal Gazette printing, perforated 12x12.25, a mint original gum example that has been lightly hinged in one corner only, beautiful bright colour. With clear Greene Foundation certificate identifying it as the old catalogue number 41a. Extremely Fine. The 3c Montreal Gazette Printings were highly prone to fading. Examples with such fresh, deep colour are scarcer than the catalogue would suggest, and are, in our opinion, undervalued.
