Canada #53 (SG#126) 3c Deep Bright Rose 1897 Diamond Jubilee Issue SUP-98 NH

SKU 222177852154

Near perfection!!. Mathematically centered amid 4 ample margins. Post office fresh NH gum and deep bright rose colour. The only thing preventing this from being GEM100 are two natural paper inclusions: one at the top, which does not show through to the front and one just above the N of "Cents". Although this is the most common value in the set, mathematically centered NH examples like this are very difficult to find. Unitrade values this stamp at $120 for VF-75 NH. But in this superb grade this is a $300-$400 stamp. The example offered here grades 98 as follows:

Centering/margins: 70/70

Paper freshness: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Impression: 5/5

Absence of visible paper flaws: 3/5

Perforations: 10/10
