Canada #184 (SG#263) 3c Dark Rose Red 1931 Admiral Provisional Perf 12x8 SUP-96 NH

SKU 322307245125
A perfectly centered and superb mint NH single of the 3c dark rose red King George V Admiral Provisional stamp, perforated 12 x 8. Vertical wove paper with no visible mesh and cream gum with a glossy sheen. Unitrade values a VF-75 NH single at $36. However examples grading above VF-84 are very scarce and seldom seen due to the coarseness of the vertical perforation. Many well centered examples have rough or uneven perforations, and conversely many stamps with even, intact perforations are off-center. This example is about as close to perfect as you are likely to find and our price reflects its scarcity in this exemplary condition. The stamp offered here grades SUP-96 NH as follows: Margins/centering: 70/70 Paper freshness: 5/5 Colour: 5/5 Impression: 5/5 Absence of visible paper flaws: 3/5 Perforations: 8/10 Note any vertical or horizontal line shown in the scan is the edge of the acetate strip that the stamp was resting inside on the stockcard. .
