Canada #204 (SG#331) 5c Steel Blue 1933 Royal William Issue Plate 2 UR Block VF-84 OG

SKU 222403431858

A very well centered and very fine OG plate 2 upper right block of 4 of the 5c steel blue 1933 Royal William 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 full and original, but is heavily disturbed, due to having become stuck to an album page. Our price has been adjusted to reflect this. Unitrade values a VF-75 OG block at $75. However, blocks in which all four stamps are this well centered are hard to find. The block offered here grades VF-84 OG 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
