Canada #117ii (SG#253) 10c Deep New Blue 1911-27 Admiral Issue Wet Printing SUP-98 LH

SKU 322163608430

A nearly perfectly centered and superb mint OG LH example of the 10c deep new blue (light blue in Unitrade), wet printing Admiral stamp from the 1911-1928 Admiral Issue. Printed on white vertical wove paper with no visible mesh and measuring 0.004" thick. The gum is a smooth shiny yellowish cream, characteristic of the late wet printings from 1920-1923. 2016 Unitrade values a VF-75 OG single at $80. However, that value is not relevant for an example of this calibre. In fact, Admirals grading above VF-84 are very scarce, and become exponentially scarcer as the grade approaches 100. 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
