Newfoundland #46i 2c Deep Yellow Green Codfish, 1880-1896 Third Cents Issue, A Fine OG Left Sheet Margin Inscription Strip With Disturbed OG

Sold out
SKU Lot103

A fine mint OG example of the 2c deep yellow green codfish stamp from the 1880-1896 Third Cents Issue, in an inscription strip of 4 from the left side of the sheet. Printed on hard, horizontal wove paper and perf. 12. The gum is disturbed, and there is considerable perf separation in the middle of the piece, which has been reinforced with hinges. Still, one does not run into very many plate inscription pieces of this issue, particularly the earler Montreal printings. Unitrade values a plate block of 4 at $800, so this strip should be worth approximately the same. The strip offered here grades 70 as follows:

Centering/margins: 40/70
Paper freshness: 5/5
Colour: 5/5
Impression: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
Perforations: 10/10
