Canada #199 (SG#323) 5c Deep Steel Blue 1932-35 Medallion Issue Cream Gum VF-82 OG
A very well centered and very fine mint OG single of the 5c deep steel blue King George V bas-relief stamp from the 1932-35 Medallion Issue. Vertical wove paper with no visible mesh and cream gum with a semi-gloss sheen, suggesting that it is from a printing made sometime between 1934-1935. Unitrade values a VF-75 OG single at $16. However, examples that are this well centered are elusive and are worth more than the Unitrade price for very fine. The stamp offered here grades VF-82 OG as follows:
Paper freshness: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
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.
