1926 Twenty cent carmine (dry printing), plate single and pair reconstructing the full imprint
“T – 2 – OTTAWA – No – 1 949 – B”. According to special delivery stamp specialist G.H. Davis,
an unsevered imprint multiple does not exist, since printed sheets were either guillotined
vertically or when perforated were separated between the fifth and sixth columns. A rare and
impressive item perfect for a serious collection, Fine to Very Fine Lightly Hinged / Never
Hinged (Unitrade E2)
Literature: Illustrated and discussed in G.H. Davis “Canada Special Delivery” handbook
on page 2-15 (Figure 18).
This lot originates from the very small percentage of sheets that were not guillotined.
