Canada #C4 (SG#318) 6c on 5c Sepia 1932 Ottawa Conference Airmail a VG/F Used Block of 4

Sold out

A very good to fine used block of 4 of the 6c on 5c sepia Mercury & globe airmail stamp from the 1932 Ottawa Conference Issue.  Postmarked in period, with a February 27, 1933 Winnipeg triple circle CDS cancel (stamp was issued July 12, 1932). The top two stamps are unfortunately creased near the bottom, and the block needs a good soak to remove the gum and hinge remains. But the bottom two stamps are sound, and this is definitely best left as a block.  Unitrade values a two F-65 used singles at $24. The block offered here grades F-70 for the bottom pair only:

Margins/centering: 30/60

Paper freshness: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Impression: 5/5

Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5

Perforations: 10/10

Cancellation: 10/10
