A well centered and very fine mint NH example of the 12c grey black Old Quebec Citadel stamp from the 1930-1935 Arch Issue, with jumbo margins. Vertical wove paper with fine vertical mesh and deep cream gum with a satin sheen. Unitrade values a VF-75 NH single at $100. However, examples with margins like this are scarce and are worth a premium. The stamp offered here grades VF-80-J NH as follows:
Paper freshness: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
Note any vertical line shown in the scan is the edge of the acetate strip that the stamp was resting inside on the stockcard. .
