Canada #BK50 (SG#SB54) Wilding Issue 25c Booklet Cover 4c x 6 Harris Cover Type IIIe + Mi Cuting Guideline VF-84 NH

SKU 322173632190

A fresh and very fine complete booklet containing 1 pane of 6 of the 4c bluish violet Queen Elizabeth II stamp from the 1954 Wilding Issue. Harris type IIIe front cover, and type Mi back cover, giving a non-fluorescent light violet reaction to ultraviolet light on the front and a dull fluorescent light violet reaction on the back. The cover has a 16 mm staple. The pane is printed on horizontal wove paper with visible ribbing on both front and back, giving a dull-fluorescent greyish reaction under ultraviolet light. The pane has shiny, smooth yellowish cream coloured gum. In addition there is a vertical cutting guideline visible on the back cover at upper left as shown in the supplementary scan. Unitrade values a VF-75 NH regular booklet at $4.50 and footnotes in Bill McCann's booklet catalogue suggest a premium of 500% for cutting guideline bookets, so this would catalogue $27. The booklet offered here grades 84 as follows:

Centering of the panes: 54/70

Cover freshness: 10/10

Condition of cover edges: 5/5

Freshness of panes: 5/5

Absence of visible cover flaws/stains: 5/5

Condition of interleaving and contents: 5/5

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 of gum.
