A fine mint NH top sheet margin pair of the 2c deep green codfish stamp from the 1880-1896 Third Cents Issue, showing full British American Bank Note Company Imprint at top. Printed on soft, vertical wove paper. And perf. 12.25 x 12. There are a couple of natural gum skips that affect both stamps and there is considerable perf separation in the vertical margin between the two stamps. Still an attractive, and not often seen multiple. Unitrade values this at $200 for NH and $100 for OG, as just singles. However, a plate block of 6 catalogues $1,000, which represents a premium of approximately 200% over the price of singles. The pair offered here grades 70 as follows:
