Canada #201 (SG#325) 13c Deep Dull Reddish Lilac 1932-35 Medallion Issue Deep Cream Gum VF-79 NH

SKU 322324072951

A very well centered and very fine mint NH single of the 13c deep dull reddish lilac Old Quebec Citadel stamp from the 1932-35 Medallion Issue. Vertical wove paper with fine vertical mesh and deep cream gum with a satin sheen, suggesting that it is from a printing made sometime between 1933-1934. Unitrade values a VF-75 NH single at $130. However, examples this well centered are very scarce, and are worth more than the Unitrade price for VF. The stamp offered here grades VF-79 NH as follows:

Margins/centering: 54/70

Paper freshness: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Impression: 5/5

Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5

Perforations: 10/10

Adjustment for minute paper wrinkle: -5 points

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.
