Canada #327, O35 (SG#452, O198) 3c Carmine-Rose Queen Elizabeth II 1953 Karsh Issue Regular and Official Stamps VF-84 NH
Very well centered NH examples of the 3c carmine-rose and 3c carmine-rose G overprint Queen Elizabeth II stamps from the 1953 Karsh Issue. Printed on horizontal wove paper giving a dull reaction under ultraviolet light and showing clear ribbing. Unitrade values VF-75 NH singles at $1. However, examples above the grade of VF-80 are much harder to come by due to the fact that these stamps were line-perforated. The stamps offered here grade 84 as follows:
Paper freshness: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
Note: the above scan is a stock photo as are all my scans for material after 1952.The item (s) you will receive has (have) been carefully checked to adhere to the above grading standards, so while they may not be exactly the same, they will be of the same quality. Also, I do not provide back scans of NH stamps after 1952 unless they are required to illustrate some attribute of the paper of gum.
