A well centered and very fine NH single of the 6c L.J Papineau death Centenary Issue from 1971, showing very weak kiss print in "Canada 6" . There is very weak doubling visible at the edges of the letters, particularly the upstroke of the "a's" and the "6". The scan shows a comparison with the kiss print at the left and the normal, sharp print on the right. Printed on horizontal wove paper showing no ribbing or mesh and giving a dull fluorescent greyish reaction under ultraviolet light on the face, and a dull fluorescent greyish reaction on the back, with a sparse concentration of low fluorescent fibres visible in the paper. Comb perforated 12.5 x 12.0. Smooth, creamy PVA gum with a satin sheen. Unitrade values a VF-75 NH single with kiss print at $10. These are quite weak and our price reflects this.
