Canada #134i (SG#218a) 3c Very Deep Brown 1911-27 Admiral Perf. 12 Horizontally, Paste-Up Pair XF-94 NH

SKU 222070003965

A nearly perfectly centered and extremely fine mint OG NH paste-up single of the 3c very deep brown (brown in Unitrade) wet printing Admiral coil from the 1911-1928 Admiral issue, perforated 12 horizontally. 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 pair at $150, so a single should be worth $75. However, a single in this grade should be worth much more, as coils grading above VF-84 are very seldom encountered. The stamp offered here grades 94 as follows:

Centering/margins: 64/70

Paper freshness: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Impression: 5/5

Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5

Perforations: 10/10
