Lot 180 Canada #MR2Di 1915 50c Black Admiral Overprinted INLAND REVENUE WAR TAX, mint never hinged with four large and balanced margins, fresh and extremely fine. A rare stamp in this exceptional condition. Unitrade CV$2,000.
Lot 157 Canada #MR2D 1915 50c Black Admiral with Two Line WAR TAX Overprint, mint never hinged, very fresh and well centered, extremely fine. A very nice stamp. The 50c War Tax is an elusive stamp, and is rarely found in the superlative quality of the example from the Outaouais Collection. The Unitrade catalogue keeps increasing the NH premium factor for this stamp, and auction realizations for premium examples keep supporting a higher valuation. We expect that this lot will not be any different. Unitrade CV$2,000, sold for C$1,900 plus 17% buyer’s premium.
