Lot 104 Canada #FB34P 1 Scarlet and Bottle Green Queen Victoria, 1865-1868 Second Bill Issue, A VG Plate Proof on India Paper Showing a Minor Re-Entry
A VG plate proof on India paper of the 1 scarlet and bottle green Queen Victoria from the 1865-1868 Second Bill Issue showing a minor re-entry. The re-entry consists of doubling in the "C"and two "A"'s of "Canada", and in the oval under the "DA" of "Canada". There is some wrinkling at the upper left, which might be pressable, but which left as is reduces the gr5ade of the proof from fine to VG.
Van Dam values this at $25 for fine. Our estimate of the value is $15. The proof offered here grades 60 as follows:
Paper Freshness: 10/10
Absence of Visible Paper Flaws: 5/5
Adjustment for mentioned faults: -10 points.
