Lot 290 Newfoundland #138 9c Bottle Green Caribou Crossing Lake, 1923-1928 Pictorial Issue, A VGNH Example, Comb Perf. 14.1 x 14

A fine appearing but VGNH example of the 9c bottle green caribou crossing lake stamp from the 1923-1928 Pictorial Issue. Comb perf. 14.1 x 14. A fairly deep diagonal gum crease at upper right reduces the grade from fine to VG. Next to the 24c, this is one of the key stamps in the set. Unitrade values this stamp in fine NH at $45, so VG should be worth approximately half, or $22.50. The stamp offered here grades 60 as follows:

Centering/margins: 40/70
Paper freshness: 5/5
Colour: 5/5
Impression: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5, adjustment for deep gum crease: -10 points
