Hammer II squared circle, a light strike 12 NOV on a pair of 3c carmine rose Karsh stamps, being the latest reported date (unconfirmed in Handbook), even though the year is missing. This stamp was issued on May 1st, 1953 so it should be later than that at least. Only two or three strikes reported, RF 200. Estimate $350, sold for C$850.00 plus 15% buyer’s premium.
