Canada #465Biv (SG#590c) $1 Scarlet Edmonton Oilfield 1967-1973 Centennial Issue MF Paper VF-80 NH

SKU 465BivVF-80(1)

A well centered NH mint example of the $1 scarlet Edmonton Oilfield stamp from the 1967-1973 Centennial Issue. Printed on white, horizontal wove paper with PVA gum that has a satin sheen. Under UV light, the paper gives a dull fluorescent bluish white glow and contains low density concentrations of low fluorescent, and medium fluorescent fibres, a sparse concentration of high fluorescent fibres and very few brownish woodpulp fibres. This is one of four variations that I have found, all of which are the MF paper listed by Unitrade. Line perforated 11.95.

Unitrade values a VF-75 NH mint example at $25. The stamp offered here grades 80 as follows:

Margins/Centering: 50/70

Paper freshness: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Impression: 5/5

Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5

Perforations: 10/10

Please note that the scan shown is a stock scan. The actual item may differ. However, it has been carefully checked to ensure that it is the same overall quality. Also, I do not provide back scans of post-1951 material unless it is required to illustrate some characteristic of the paper or gum.
