A well centered and very fine NH pair of the 4c deep purple violet Queen Elizabeth II coil stamp from the 1954 Wilding Issue. Printed on smooth vertically wove paper showing clear vertical ribbing on the gum and giving a dull fluorescent greyish white reaction under ultraviolet light. The scan at the right is for comparison purposes only and shows the violet, deep purple violet and milky violet shades. The spacing between stamp impressions is 4 mm. Smooth and shiny yellowish cream coloured gum. Unitrade values VF-75 NH pairs at $4. The pair offered here grades 80 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.
