Canada #107iv (SG#247) 2c Deep Dull Yellowish Green Admiral Issue Dry Printing, Paper With No Mesh VF-80-J NH

SKU 322168876002

A well centered and very fine mint NH example of the 2c deep dull yellowish green (yellow green in Unitrade), dry printing Admiral stamp with jumbo margins from the 1911-1928 Admiral Issue. Printed on white vertical wove paper showing no visible mesh, and measuring 0.005" thick. This is a full 0.001" thicker than what is usually seen on the earlier dry printings. The gum is smooth, shiny cream - slightly lighter in colour than the earlier dry printings. Unitrade values a VF-75 NH single at $90. However, an example with wide margins like this is worth at least 50% more than this. The stamp offered here grades 80-J as follows:

Centering/margins: 50/70 (jumbo)

Paper freshness: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Impression: 5/5

Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5

Perforations: 10/10
