Canada #66 (SG#142) Half Cent Black 1897-1898 Maple Leaf Issue Thick Paper Re-Entry VF-80 NH

SKU 322183690038

A wel centered and very fine mint NH example on thick vertical wove paper. The thick paper is not separately listed in Unitrade, but this paper measures 0.0045" thick as opposed to the normal 0.0035-0.004", which is a significant difference. In addition, the stamp shows a strong re-entry, with the UR leaf and shading in the upper right spandrel, as well as the lower left leaf showing distinct doubling. Unitrade values a normal VF-75 NH example at $60. However, with the thicker paper and re-entries, the stamp should be worth closer to $75-$80. The example offered here grades 80 as follows:

Centering/margins: 50/70

Paper freshness: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Impression: 5/5

Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5

Perforations: 10/10
