Canada #132 (SG#218) 2c Scarlet 1911-27 Admiral Perf. 12 Horizontally VF-80-J OG NH
A well centered and very fine mint OG NH single of the 2c scarlet (carmine in Unitrade) wet printing Admiral coil from the 1911-1928 Admiral issue, perforated 12 horizontally, with jumbo margins. Printed on vertical wove paper measuring 0.004" thick with no visible mesh. The gum is a smooth, shiny cream, characteristic of the late wet printings made after 1918. Unitrade values a VF-75 NH single at $150. However an example like this with jumbo margins is worth considerably more, as coils like this are seldom seen. The stamp offered here grades 80-J as follows:
Centering/margins: 50/70 (jumbo)
Paper freshness: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
