Canada #340ii (SG#466) 4c Light Violet 1954 Wilding Issue Plate 15 LR LF LV Smooth Paper F-70 NH
A well centered and fine NH example of the 4c light bluish violet Queen Elizabeth II stamp from the 1954-63 Wilding Issue, in a plate 15 lower right (LR) block of 4. Printed on vertical wove paper showing no visible ribbing and giving a low fluorescent light violet reaction under ultraviolet light, with a low density concentration of low fluorescent fibres. This is one of the types of paper that Unitrade refers to as fluorescent. Streaky, shiny cream gum. Unitrade values a VF-75 NH block at $75. The block offered here grades 70 as follows:
Paper freshness: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
Adjustment for minor selvage wrinkles: - 5 points
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.
