Canada #96 (SG#188) 1/2c Brown Black Quebec Tercentenary Coarse Mesh Paper VF-84 LH

SKU 322190452698

A very well centered and very fine mint OG LH example of the 1/2c brown black Prince and Princess of Wales stamp from the 1908 Quebec Tercentenary Issue. Printed on vertical wove paper showing coarse vertical mesh. The gum is a smooth, shiny yellowish cream. Unitrade values a VF-75 OG example at $15 and an NH example at $45. However, stamps from this issue that grade higher than this are much, much scarcer and command significant premiums as the grade approaches 100. A very fine example like this is worth many multiples of this value, as it is seldom found this well centered. The stamp offered here grades 84 as follows:

Centering/margins: 54/70

Paper freshness: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Impression: 5/5

Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5

Perforations: 10/10
