Sold out

A well centered (left to right) and very fine mint LH example of the 2c deep bright green Queen Elizabeth II stamp from the 1953-1954 Karsh Issue, showing a spectacular misperf. Printed on lightly ribbed vertical wove paper, and with cream gum that has a satin sheen. The misperf arises from having the horizontal perforations shifted 4 mm downwards. Unitrade does not value misperfs, but misperfs like this usually sell for between $25-$30 in NH condition. So a LH stamp should be worth $15 or so. The stamp offered here grades 80 as follows:

Centering/margins: 50/70
Paper freshness: 5/5
Colour: 5/5
Impression: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
Perforations: 10/10
