Lot 13 British Columbia #16 25c On 3d Orange Seal Of BC, 1869 Surcharge Issue, A FOG Single With 2018 Gratton Cert, Perf 12
A FOG single of the 25c on 3d orange Seal Of BC from the 1869 Surcharge Issue with 2018 gratton cert, perf 12.
The Gratton cert states that the stamp has short and missing perforations. This is grossly incorrect, and respectfully shows that Mr Gratton is unfamiliar with perf 12.5 Crown CC stamps. All 12.5 Crown CC's have unpunched perforation discs and often appear to have short perfs when in reality it only looks this way because most of ther perf discs remain attached to the stamp. If you remove them then you will find that the perfs are actually 8/10.
Unitrade values this at $1600. The stamp offered here grades 68 as follows:
Paper Freshness: 5/5
Absence of Visible Paper Flaws: 5/5
