SKU 322058779210

A very attractive and fresh very fine mint OG NH imperforate block of four of the 2c deep green (green in Unitrade) wet printing Admiral stamp from the 1924 Admiral Imperforate issue, with unlisted hairlines variety. 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. The scans show the position of the fine hairlines that are visible in the inside vertical margin, as well as the left and right vertical margins. Unitrade values a VF-75 NH block at $400. Only 25,000 pairs were originally issued in 1924, so the number of intact blocks is much smaller. The block offered here grades 84 as follows:

Centering/margins: 54/70

Paper freshness: 10/10

Colour: 10/10

Impression: 5/5

Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
