A very fine NH pair of the 5c dark blue violet Queen Elizabeth II coil stamp from the 1954 Wilding Issue. Printed on ribbed vertically wove paper showing clear ribbing on the gum and giving a dull fluorescent ivory reaction under ultraviolet light. The spacing between stamp impressions is 4 mm. Smooth and shiny yellowish cream coloured gum. Unitrade values a VF-75 NH pair at $6. The pair offered here grades 75 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.
