Canada #415 (SG#539) 15c Canada Geese 1963-67 Cameo Issue Plate 2 LL DFBW Paper VF-80 NH
A well centered and very fine NH example of the plate 2 lower left corner block of the 15c bright violet blue Canada geese stamp from the 1963-1967 Cameo issue. Printed on vertical wove paper that shows no ribbing on the front, and mild ribbing on the back. Under ultraviolet light, the paper gives a dull fluorescent bluish white reaction, with no fluorescent fibres visible in the paper, and a slightly fluorescent reaction to the ink. The ink shows clearly through the back. Perforated 11.95 x 11.85, so a compound of the pre 1962 CBN gauge and the post 1962 CBN gauge. . Yellowish cream gum with a semi-gloss sheen. Unitrade values a VF example of this block at $12.50. 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.
