A very fine NH example the 25c Centennial Issue stapled booklet containing 1 pane of 5 5c stamps, with deep bright blue Centennial cover. Both the front and back covers are printed on smooth card stock. The front cover gives a dull fluorescent greyish reaction under UV light, with a sparse concentration of low fluorescent fibres and a very sparse concentration of medium fluorescent fibres. The back cover gives a dull fluorescent reaction under UV light, with very few medium fluorescent fibres, visible in the stock. The pane is printed on horizontal wove cream paper with smooth, yellowish cream coloured dextrose gum that has a semi-gloss sheen. The pane gives a dull fluorescent greyish reaction under UV light, with no fluorescent fibres being visible in the paper. The staple is 13 mm long and the booklet contains an interleaf between the back of the pane and the back cover. In normal light, and under UV light, the ink is deep blue.
