SKU Lot25

A well centered and fresh mint sheet of the 1955 World Scout Jamboree Issue, from the upper left position of plate 1-1. Line perf. 11.95 x 11.9 and printed on smooth, horizontal wove paper that shows very clear vertical ribbing and yellowish cream gum. There is one green plate position dot visible in the upper selvage above position 5. This issue is significant as it is the first to be printed on horizontal wove paper, with vertical ribbing. By 1962 this will be the standard printing format for the commemoratives, but at this point in the 1950's it was a new process. Tiny wrinkle of the lower left corner selvage, but otherwise pristine. Unitrade value of 46 singles and 1 plate block is $28.05.
