Two very fine NH examples of the 1c violet brown and 2c deep green Winnipeg Tagged Queen Elizabeth II stamps from the 1954 Wilding Issue. The stamps are printed on vertical wove paper giving a dull-fluorescent greyish reaction under ultraviolet light. The 1c stamp shows no visible ribbing, while the 2c shows light vertical ribbing on the gum. The tagging is moderately applied, being clearly visible to the naked eye, but not dark. Smooth yellowish cream coloured gum. Unitrade values VF-75 NH singles at $3.50. The stamps offered here grade 75 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 or blocks after 1952 unless they are required to illustrate some attribute of the paper of gum.
