Description

Cracked plate (pos. 72) This is a constant variety mentioned in the 1996 The Canadian Philatelist article by Jim Watt and Fred Fawn. They referred to it as a "spur above the 'O' of 'POSTAGE'" and plated it as position 72. This lovely copy shows the flaw clearly as a short spur or diagonal line in the top margin that originates from the outer frame line just above the "O" of "POSTAGE". A very scarce stamp in this condition.
