SKU Lot-105-July-20-2022

A good unused example of the 1 deep blue and black Queen Victoria from the 1868-1890's Third Bill Issue perf. 12 on thin paper. Fine appearing, but some pulled perforations and a light diagonal corner crease reduce the grade to good. Still, Van Dam notes that the thin paper printings are much scarcer than the thick papers, being values at 2.5 times normal. At a Van Dam value of $75, we estimate that the value of this example is $15.
