Canada #181 (SG#307) 2c Scarlet King George V 1930-1931 Arch Issue Coil Line Single VG-55 OG

SKU 181VG55OG1

A very good OG example of  the 2c scarlet King George V coil stamp from the 1930-32 Arch Issue, showing the line in the left margin from a line pair.   Printed on horizontal wove paper with no clear mesh, and with smooth deep cream gum, that shows light and dark horizontal streaks, that are rather indistinct.  Although not mentioned in Unitrade, the coil stamps of this issue have several different paper and gum type combinations, and there are at least two different shades of each value.  The paper varies according to the direction of the weave (horizontal versus vertical) and the direction and visibility of the mesh. The gum varies in colour and sheen. In my opinion these varieties are every bit as collectible as perforation and shade varieties on the other issues. Perf. 8.5 vertical.  Unitrade values a F-65 OG single at $17.50.  The stamp here grades VG-55 OG follows:

Margins/centering: 25/70

Paper freshness: 5/5 

Colour: 5/5 

Impression: 5/5 

Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
