A very well centered and very fine NH mint single of the 48c 2002 Year of the Horse Issue.

This is the standard paper on which this issue is usually found. The tagging is dull greenish yellow Ottawa GT-4 tagging measuring 1.5-2mm wide. This is a variation of the tagging, which is usually a very bright yellow. Unitrade values a normal VF-75 NH single at $1.00. The stamp offered here grades 84 as follows:
Paper freshness: 5/5 Colour: 5/5 Impression: 5/5 Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5 Perforations 10/10
