Canada #471 (SG#613) 5c 1967 Royal Visit DFVW Paper, Eggshell Streaky Cream Gum VF-84 NH

SKU 222622317534
A very well centered and very fine mint NH single of the 5c brown orange and purple 1967 Royal Visit Issue. Line perf. 11.85 x 11.95. Horizontal wove paper with no ribbing, or visible mesh, and streaky cream DEX gum with an eggshell sheen. Under ultraviolet light, the paper gives a dull fluorescent violet white reaction, with no fluorescent fibres being visible in the paper. Unitrade values a VF-75 NH single on the normal dull paper at $0.35. This is a scarcer variation of the dull paper. The stamp offered here grades VF-84 NH as follows: Margins/centering: 54/70 Paper freshness: 5/5 Colour: 5/5 Impression: 5/5 Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5 Perforations: 10/10 Note any vertical or horizontal line shown in the scan is the edge of the acetate strip that the stamp was resting inside on the stockcard. 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.
