CANADA 1954-62 3c carmine (UNUSED), SG465a

Sold out
SKU JC1875

Canada 1954-62 3c carmine, right marginal block of 4, ERROR IMPERFORATE VERTICALLY, from positions 69-70/79-80 of the one sheet discovered, SG465a.

Very fresh unmounted mint example with full original gum. Trivial handling blemishes (upper pair with insignificant surface mark, lower pair with minor wrinkle) and very desirable in this form.

Extremely scarce as only 50 pairs originally existed, with few blocks now surviving.

These lower-denomination definitive Canada stamps, feature a right-facing portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, first issued at the beginning of 1954. They were considered much more attractive in appearance than the 1953 Karsh Issues, and were readily accepted by the public.

The Stanley Gibbons catalogue value is £3,600+.
