Sold out

A good mint NH example of the second Ottawa Printing of the five cent Small Queen. Deep brownish grey shade, and p. 12 x 12.25 on soft horizontal wove paper, with mottled gum. There is a vertical crease affecting the right side of the stamp that is not obvious from the front, that lowers the grade from very good to good. Unitrade values a VG-55 NH example at $30, so a good one should be worth $15.
