Canada #105xx (SG#246) 1c Pale Orange Yellow Admiral Issue Ottawa Precancel Die 1 - VF-80 NH
A well centered and very fine mint OG NH example of the 1c pale orange yellow (yellow in Unitrade) Admiral stamp from the 1911-1928 Admiral Issue, in the die 1 wet printing, with Ottawa 2-bar precancel. Printed on white vertical wove paper showing no visible mesh unless held to a strong light source and measuring 0.004" thick. The gum is a smooth, satin cream. Unitrade values a VF-75 NH example of the non-precancelled stamp at $120. It does not price mint precancels, though given their scarcity, I would expect that they should be worth much more than a stamp without precancel The stamp offered here grades 80 as follows:
Paper freshness: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
I currently have two stamps in stock that are the above grade. You will receive one of the above stamps of your choice.
