Sold out

A very well centered and VFNH end strip of 4 of the vertical coil of the 96c multicoloured Janet Elizabeth "Fire Dancer" coil stamp from the 2004-2010 Floral definitive issue, showing grossly misplaced die cutting. The horizontal die cutting is shifted almost 6 mm upward. Printed on TRC paper. 7.90-9.60 die cut with sawtooth tips and 4 nibs. The strip has a gutter on the end and is identified as being an end strip by the wavy line die cut that is present in the bottom gutter. 

Unitrade does not value misplaced die cutting, but they are similar to misperfs on perforated stamps, and typically sell for $25-$30 per stamp. So, we would estimate the strip at $100. The strip offered here grades 84 as follows:

Margins/centering: 54/70

Paper freshness: 5/5
