Gambia #22 (SG#39) 2d Orange and Mauve Brown Queen Victoria, 1898-1902 Keyplate Issue, a VFNH Marginal Example

Sold out

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:

    Centering/Margins: 50/70

    Paper freshness: 2/5 

    Colour: 5/5

    Impression: 5/5 

    Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5

    Perforations: 8/10
