Canada #470 (SG#612) 5c Grey and Rose Lilac Suffrage LR Block DFLV Ribbed Paper Smooth Gum VF-84 NH

SKU 222617539177
A very well centered and very fine mint NH lower right inscription block of the 5c grey and deep rose lilac Women's Suffrage Issue. Line perf. 11.85 x 11.95. Vertical wove paper with light horizontal ribbing visible on the gummed side, and smooth deep cream DEX gum with a semi-gloss sheen. Under ultraviolet light, the paper gives a dull fluorescent light violet reaction, with no fluorescent fibres being visible in the paper. Unitrade values a VF-75 NH block on the normal dull paper at $1.75. This is a slightly less common variation of the dull paper, and the shade is the deep rose lilac, as opposed to the lighter shade. A comparison scan is shown, to illustrate the difference between the two shades. The block offered here grades VF-84 NH as follows: Margins/centering: 54/70 Paper freshness: 5/5 Colour: 5/5 Impression: 5/5 Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5 Perforations: 10/10 Note any vertical or horizontal line shown in the scan is the edge of the acetate strip that the stamp was resting inside on the stockcard. Note: the above scan is a stock photo as are all my scans for material after 1952. The item(s) you will receive has (have) been carefully checked to adhere to the above grading standards, so while it (they) may not be exactly the same, it (they) will be of the same quality. Also, I do not provide back scans of NH stamps or blocks after 1952 unless they are required to illustrate some attribute of the paper or gum.
