Canada #O37 (SG#O200) 5c Ultramarine Queen Elizabeth II "G" 1953 Karsh Issue VF-84 NH
A very well centered NH example of the 5c ultramarine "G" overprint Queen Elizabeth II stamp from the 1953 Karsh Issue. Printed on horizontal wove paper giving a dull reaction under ultraviolet light and showing clear ribbing. Unitrade values a VF-75 NH single at $.90. However, examples above the grade of VF-80 are much harder to come by due to the fact that these stamps were line-perforated. The stamp offered here grades 84 as follows:
Paper freshness: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 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 after 1952 unless they are required to illustrate some attribute of the paper of gum.
