Sold out

A well centered and very fine mint NH jump strip of 4 of the 5c deep bright blue Queen Elizabeth II coil stamp from the 1954-1962 Wilding Issue, showing the "damaged E" on the third stamp. Printed on dull fluorescent horizontal wove paper that shows clear vertical ribbing. The jump is between the first and second pairs. Unitrade states that jump strips will never be perfectly centered because of the jump, so the way to grade them properly is as the average of the two pairs. Unitrade values this strip in this grade at $15.  The strip 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
