Canada #184 (SG#263) 3c Dark Rose Red 1931 Admiral Provisional Perf 12x8 VF-84J NH

SKU 322307250157
A very well centered and very fine mint NH single of  the 3c dark rose red King George V Admiral Provisional stamp, perforated 12 x 8, with jumbo margins. Vertical wove paper with fine vertical mesh and cream gum with a glossy sheen. Unitrade values a VF-75 NH single at $36.  However examples grading above VF-80 are scarce 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 very close to perfect and our price reflects its scarcity in this exemplary condition. The stamp offered here grades VF-84-J NH as follows:  Margins/centering: 54/70 (jumbo)  Paper freshness: 5/5  Colour: 5/5  Impression: 5/5  Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5 Perforations: 10/10 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.  .
