Two very well centered and very fine NH singles of the 25c vermilion chemical industry stamp from the 1954 Wilding Issue. Printed on two slightly different horizontal wove papers as follows:

  • Paper showing ribbing only on the back and giving a dull fluorescent greyish white reaction under ultraviolet (UV) light. Smooth, shiny yellowish cream gum.
  • Paper showing ribbing on the front and back and giving a dull fluorescent greyish white reaction under UV. Smooth shiny yellowish cream gum.

Unitrade values VF-75 NH singles at $4.50. However stamps grading above VF-80 are scarcer due to the fact that the stamps were line perforated. The stamps offered here grade 82 as follows:

Centering/margins: 54/70

Paper freshness: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Impression: 5/5

Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5

Perforations: 8/10

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 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.
