SKU Lot32

A fine mint NH block of 4 of the 1c green Princess Elizabeth stamp from the 1935 Silver Jubilee Issue, showing a slash across the medalion oval on the upper left stamp.. In addition to the "weeping princess" and "shilling mark" varieties that are listed in Unitrade there are other varieties that have been written about over the years, mostly by the famous and now late Canadian specialist Hans Reiche. Not listed in Unitrade, but my estimate of the value is $10. Unitrade values this at $10. The block 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
