Canada #339p (SG#465p) 3c Carmine 1954 Wilding Issue W2B 2 Different Papers F-70 NH
Two fine NH examples of the 3c carmine Winnipeg Tagged Queen Elizabeth II stamps from the 1954 Wilding Issue. The stamps are printed on horizontal wove paper showing ribbing only on the gum and giving two different reactions under ultraviolet light as follows:
- Dull fluorescent greyish
- Dull fluorescent greyish white
The tagging is lightly applied, being almost invisible to the naked eye. Smooth and shiny cream coloured gum. Unitrade values VF-75 NH singles at $3.50. The stamps offered here grade 70 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.
