Canada #110d (SG#249a) 4c Olive Bistre Admiral Issue Dry Printing, Thin Paper VF-75 Used

SKU 322192458023

A very fine used example of the 4c olive bistre (yellow ochre in Unitrade), dry printing Admiral stamp from the 1911-1928 Admiral Issue. Printed on white vertical wove paper showing no visible mesh and measuring 0.0035" thick. This is noticeably thinner than what is usually found on the dry printings, which normally measure between 0.004" and 0.005", though most are between 0.0045-0.005". Unitrade does list a thin paper on the 7c red brown, but for some reason does not list this paper for other values of the set. Unitrade values a VF-75 normal used single at $6. The stamp offered here grades 75 as follows:

Centering/margins: 35/60

Paper freshness: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Impression: 5/5
