Canada #37 & 41 3c Orange Red and Vermilion 1870-1897 Small Queen Issue, Cancel Lot Consisting of 43 Examples With Different Fancy Cancels
43 used examples of the 3c cent orange red and vermilion Small Queen. There is a range of shades here including dull red, pale orange red, bright orange red, deep orage red, dull orange red, bright vermilion and orange vermilion. Of the stamps 22 are Montreal printings and 21 are second Ottawa printings. I haven't checked the perfs, but you can expect to find 12, 12.1, 12.1 x 12, or 12 x 12.1. The quality is generally fine with a few being VG.
In terms of the cancels we have:
- 6 target cancels on Montreal printings
- 16 bulls eye or dumb cancels on Montreal printings
- 4 bullseye cancels on second Ottawa printings
- 8 target cancels on second Ottawa printings
- 9 dumb cancels on second Ottawa printings
Unitrade value is less relevant here, as these are generally sold at $1-$5 each depending on how unusual the cancel is. Most of these are fairly common, but there are some nice strikes. So I'd estimate this lot at $45-$55.
