Canada #60i (SG#135) 50c Deep Ultramarine Diamond Jubilee SUP-98 OG


A nearly perfectly centered mint hinged example of the 50c deep ultramarine Jubilee issue stamp. The top, left and bottom margins are of exactly equal width, and the right margin is just ever so slightly narower than the other three, but this is not apparent without a calibrated loupe. Fresh mint "bloom". There are two hinge remnants on the gum, which should be left where they are, so as to not risk damaging this beautiful stamp. Very difficult to find in this quality. Unitrade values a VF-75 example at $600, but XF and Superb examples are worth significantly more - between $1,200 and $1,500. However, our price reflects the fact that the gum has two hinge remnants. A prime stamp for that fastidious collector who does not mind hinged stamps but wants perfection otherwise. The stamp offered here grades 98 as follows:

Centering margins: 68/70

Paper freshness: 5/5

Printing impression: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5

Perforations: 10/10
