Canada #347 (SG#470) 4c Violet 1954 Wilding Issue Coil Strip 4 mm Spacing DF Gr. Smooth Paper VF-80 NH
A well centered and very fine NH strip of 4 of the 4c violet Queen Elizabeth II coil stamp from the 1954 Wilding Issue. Printed on smooth vertical wove paper that shows no visible ribbing and which gives a dull-fluorescent greyish reaction under ultraviolet light. The scan at right shows the violet and deep dull violet shades for comparison only. The spacing between the stamp impressions is 4 mm, 4 mm and 4 mm. Streaky, shiny cream coloured gum. Unitrade values a VF-75 strip at $8. The strip offered here grades VF-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.
