Canada #202 (SG#329) 5c Steel Blue 1933 UPU Meeting Issue Yellowish Cream Gum VF-80 NH
A well centered and very fine NH example of the 5c steel blue 1933 Universal Postal Union Congress Issue. 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). The gum is NH and retains most of its original shine. Upon close examination, there are a few very minute spots of disturbance, but these are almost imperceptible, and are not the result of hinging. Our has been adjusted to reflect this. Unitrade values a VF-75 NH single at $32.
