Sold out
SKU 322190491012

An almost perfectly centered and superb mint OG HR example of the 1c deep grey green (deep blue green in Unitrade) Admiral stamp from the 1911-1928 Admiral Issue. Despite the fact that Unitrade does list a grey-green shade, this is deeper than the shade the catalogue editors have in mind for that listing, and so it is closer to what most collectors and dealers think of as deep blue green, even though it is actually deep grey-green according to the Gibbons colour key. Printed on white vertical wove paper showing coarse vertical mesh, and measuring 0.0035"-0.004" thick. The gum is a smooth shiny yellowish cream, which together with the shade, places this stamp in the 1911-1913 pre-war period. Unitrade values a VF-75 OG example at $90, however that value is wholly irrelevant for a stamp of this calibre as Admirals grading above VF-84 are seldom offered. The stamp offered here grades 98 as follows:

Centering/margins: 68/70

Paper freshness: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Impression: 5/5

Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5

Perforations: 10/10
