Canada #202 (SG#329) 5c Steel Blue 1933 UPU Meeting Issue Yellowish Cream Gum VF-75-J NH

SKU 222401640827

A very fine NH example of the 5c steel blue 1933 Universal Postal Union Congress Issue, with jumbo margins. Printed on vertical wove paper with no visible mesh, and with smooth yellowish cream gum that has a semi-gloss sheen. Line perf. 10.9 (listed as 11 in Unitrade). Unitrade values a VF-75 NH single at $32. However, examples like this with margins that exceed 1 mm in width are scarce, and worth a premium over the VF price.The gum is NH and retains most of its original shine. However under very close examination there are a few tiny spots of light disturbance which are not the result of hinging and are noticeable unless you know they are there and know what to look for. However, we do mention them for accuracy, and our price has been adjusted to reflect this. The stamp offered here grades VF-75-J as follows: Margins/centering: 45/70 (jumbo) Paper freshness: 5/5 Colour: 5/5 Impression: 5/5 Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5 Perforations: 10/10
