Canada #98 (SG#190) 2c Aniline Carmine Rose Quebec Tercentenary Coarse Mesh Paper F-70 NH

SKU 322169166688

A fine mint NH example of the 2c aniline carmine-rose Queen Alexandra and King Edward VII stamp from the 1908 Quebec Tercentenary Issue. Printed on vertical wove paper showing coarse vertical mesh. The gum is a shiny, smooth yellowish cream. This is another clear and distinct shade and ink variety that Unitrade ignores for reasons I do not understand. The aniline nature of the ink is clear from an examination of the back of the stamp in which the colour shows through the back. Unitrade values a F-65 NH example at $30. The stamp offered here grades 70 as follows:

Centering/margins: 40/70

Paper freshness: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Impression: 5/5

Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5

Perforations: 10/10
