Canada #404vi 4c Bright Red Queen Elizabeth II, 1962-1967 Cameo Issue, a VFNH UL Field Stock Block Tagged With 8 mm Split Bar, on DF-fl Paper

Sold out

A very fine NH upper left field stock block of the 4c bright red stamp of the 1962-1967 Cameo Issue, printed on smooth DF-fl paper, and tagged with a 8 mm split bar (6 x 8 mm bars per pane) of medium strength.  Perf. 11.85 x 11.9 with a streaky dex gum that has a semi-gloss sheen. 

The tagging on this issue does exhibit some differences that are not specifically mentioned in Unitrade. The main one is that the strength varies from light, which is almost invisible, to moderate, which is visible, but not dark, and finally to dark, in which the bands appear deep yellow. The width of the bands also varies from the standard width of between 8-9 mm to a smaller size of 7 mm, which was applied at the outer columns of the panes of some, but not all printings. 

This block has wide selvedge on the left and at the top, so it comes from the upper left pane.

Unitrade lists a corner block of this tagging variety at $15.00. The block offered here grades 75 as follows:

Centering/Margins 45/70

Paper freshness: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Impression: 5/5
