Canada #601 (SG#708) $2 Quebec 1972-1978 Caricature Issue Paper Type 13 Plate 2 LL VF-75 NH

SKU 222784335537
A very fine mint NH plate 2 lower left block of 4 of the $2 multicoloured Quebec City definitive from the 1972-1977 Caricature and Landscapes Issue, perf. 11. Vertical wove paper, with no ribbing. Smooth creamy PVA gum with a satin sheen. Under ultraviolet light, the paper gives a medium fluorescent bluish white reaction on the front, and a low fluorescent bluish white reaction on the back, with a low density concentration of low fluorescent fibres and a sparse concentration of medium fluorescent fibres in the paper, which are visible on both sides. Unitrade does not specify the paper fluorescence of stamp. Unitrade lists a VF-75 NH plate block of the basic stamp at $27.50. The block offered here grades VF-75 NH as follows: Margins/centering: 45/70 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.
