A well centered and very fine NH example of the 5c crimson rose and dark green national emblems stamp from the 1959 Battle on Plains of Abraham issue. showing a 2 mm upward shift of the maple leaves, so that the tip of the centre leaf nearly touches the upper frameline. Included is a regular stamp, printed in a slightly lighter shade to show the difference clearly.
