A well centered and NH (in the stamp - sheet margins are ungummed) example of the 50pf + 4.5M blue Bicentennial of Goethe souvenir sheet. One of the key DDR forerunner semi-postal issues. Scott lists this sheet in NH condition for $180. The sheet offered here grades 84 as follows:
Paper freshness: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
Sheet edges: 10/10
Note the lines on the back are the pockets of the clear hagner page that the sheet was in when we scanned it. There are no creases of any kind.
