$31.75
SKU

Two very well centered, fresh and very fine mint NH examples of the 75c yellow orange stamp from the 1938-1968 Third Law issue, each printed on a slightly different paper and in a slightly different shade. One stamp is printed in a brighter shade of the yellow orange, on a crisp translucent, smooth wove paper, with smooth cream gum. The other stamp is printed in a slightly duller shade on a more opaque wove paper that shows very slight horizontal ribbing on the back only. Van Dam values two F-65 mint NH examples of these stamps at $31.25, but realistically there should be a premium for VF centering, so a reasonable value would be closer to $50. The stamps offered here grade 84 and 80 as follows:

Centering/margins: 45/70 and 50/70

Paper freshness: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Impression: 5/5

Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5

Perforations: 10/10
