Canada #614a (SG#753var) 15c RCMP Musical Ride 1973 RCMP Centenary Issue Imperf. Block of 4 MF/MF-fl, HB Paper VF-80 NH
A rare and very fine NH imperforate block of 4 of the 15c multicolured 1973 Musical Ride stamp from the RCMP Centenary issue. Printed on chalk surfaced paper giving a medium fluorescent reaction under ultraviolet light, on the face, and a medium fluorescent reaction on the back, with a very, very sparse concentration of hibrite fibres. Smooth cream PVA gum with a satin sheen, and a few very minor wrinkles, but none of the defects that are so often found on the imperforate pairs of this issue. Unitrade values a VF-75 NH block at $1,200.00. The block offered here grades 80.
