Canada #158 (SG#284) 50c Deep Blue The Bluenose 1928 Scroll Issue Frame Flaw VF-75 NH

SKU 322394434539
A very fine mint NH (tiny spot of gum disturbance at the base of the Bluenose) example of the 50c deep blue Bluenose schooner stamp from the 1928-1929 Scroll Issue, with an unlisted "bubble" frame flaw to the left of the left value tablet. Horizontal wove paper showing fine horizontal mesh on the back. This is the first plate flaw other than the "Man on Mast" that I have encountered on this value. Plate flaws in general are rarely seen on this issue because the plates were made from chromium plated nickel plates, which were very durable and did not wear much. Unitrade values a VF-75 NH single at $700, and OG at $350. However, these prices are for a normal examples without the plate flaw. The stamp offered here grades VF-75 OG as follows: Margins/centering: 45/70 Paper freshness: 5/5 Colour: 5/5 Impression: 5/5 Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5 Perforations: 10/10
