Canada #334 (SG#462) 50c Pale Green Textiles 1953 Karsh Issue NF Paper Type H VF-84 NH
A very well centered and very fine NH single of the 50c light green Textile Industry stamp from the 1953 Karsh Issue. Printed on horizontal wove paper with a smooth surface and showing horizontal mesh only when held up to strong light and giving a yellowish ivory reaction under ultraviolet light. Streaky yellowish cream coloured gum. Unitrade values a VF-75 NH single at $5. However stamps grading above VF-80 are much harder to find due to the fact that they are line perforated. The stamp offered here grades 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 it (they) may not be exactly the same, it (they) will be of the same quality. Also, I do not provide back scans of NH stamps or blocks after 1952 unless they are required to illustrate some attribute of the paper of gum.
