Canada #411 (SG#536) $1 Carmine Red Exports 1963-1967 Cameo Issue LR Plate Block DFBW Paper VF-80 NH
A well centered and very fine NH example of the plate 1 lower right corner block of the $1 carmine red Exports stamp from the 1963-1967 Cameo issue. Printed on horizontal wove paper that shows no ribbing on the front or the back. Under ultraviolet light, the paper gives a dull fluorescent bluish white reaction, with no fluorescent fibres visible in the paper. The ink shows clearly through the back and there is a clear embossing effect visible as well. Perforated 11.95, which is the pre 1962 CBN gauge. Deep cream gum with a satin sheen. There is a light gum disturbance in the right selvage that just affects the two stamps at right, but the other two stamps are completely unaffected. Unitrade values a VF example of this block at $90. The block offered here grades VF-80 as follows: Centering/margins: 50/70 Paper freshness: 5/5 Colour: 5/5 Impression: 5/5 Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5 Perforations: 10/10 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 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 or gum.
