Gambia #22 (SG#39) 2d Orange and Mauve Brown Queen Victoria, 1898-1902 Keyplate Issue, a VFNH Marginal Example
A well centered and very fine mint NH upper sheet margin example of the 2d orange and mauve Queen Victoria stamp from the 1898-1902 Keyplate Issue.
Gibbons lists this stamp in fine OG for 6.5 pounds, (approx. $13). Normally NH material in this time period should be worth from double to triple catalogue. This stamp has a little bit of toning, so I would estimate it at $13 - the same as a hinged copy. The stamp offered here grades 75 as follows:
Paper freshness: 2/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
