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 checkedto 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.
