Canada #BK74e 25c Caricature Booklet - MF Cvr/NF Pane Counter Orange Hair VF-75 NH

SKU 322556079454

A very fine NH complete booklet of 6 of the 25c Caricature Issue booklet, with type X Canuck cover, with counting mark, showing orange in Queen's hair on first 8c stamp in bottom row and blue in Canada on middle 1c stamp in top row. There is also reverse offset of the blue Canada inscriptions on the back. The cover is printed on card stock which gives a medium fluorescent bluish white reaction under ultraviolet light, with a low density concentration of medium fluorescent fibres visible in the stock. The pane itself is printed on Abitibi Price paper giving a dull fluorescent greyish reaction under ultraviolet light on both sides, with no fluorescent fibres being visible in the paper. The pane width is 74 mm and the sealant is the clear variety. Three 4 mm OP-2 tag bars, with a 3 mm bar on the right edge of the pane. Only listed in Unitrade as BK74a, but as BK74e in McCann. McCann values a VF-75 NH normal booklet at $4.50. The orange in the hair commands a very slight premium, as does the reverse offset variety. The booklet offered here grades 75 as follows:
