Canada #338p (SG#464p) 2c Green 1954 Wilding Issue W2B Tag LL DF Greyish Smooth Paper VF-84 NH
A very well centered and very fine NH example of the 2c green Winnipeg Tagged Queen Elizabeth II stamp from the 1954-63 Wilding Issue, in blank lower left (LL) block of 4. Printed on vertical wove paper giving a dull-fluorescent greyish reaction under ultraviolet light and showing no visible ribbing. The tagging bars are lightly applied, being almost invisible to the naked eye. Cream gum. Unitrade values a VF-75 NH block at $8.75. However, blocks grading above VF-80 are scarcer because the stamps were line perforated. The block 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.
