Canada #238i 1c Green King George VI 1937-1942 Mufti Issue Very Fine Mint NH/OG Coil Jump Strip of 4 of the 1941-1942 Printing
A well centered and very fine mint NH/OG jump strip of 4 of the 1c green King George VI coil stamp from the 1937-1942 Mufti Issue. This issue is found printed on several different types of paper, including a horizontal wove paper that shows vertical ribbing, and a soft, fibrous horizontal wove paper that is usually found with a smooth cream gum. This strip is printed on a horizontal wove paper, with a crackly light cream gum. This generally comes from the printings made toward the end of this issue's life, as it matches the paper used for the early printings of the War issue coils.
The jump occurs between the two pairs in the strip. The left stamp is NH, and the other three are hinged. The left pair is lightly folded between the two stamps, while the remainder of the strip is unfolded.
Unitrade values this strip at $24 for hinged. The strip offered here grades 79 as follows:
Paper freshness: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
