SKU Lot39

A fine mint regummed example of the 15c steel blue Queen Victoria stamp from the 1897 Diamond Jubilee Issue. At first I thought this might be NH, but upon close examination I can see that it is indeed regummed. The signs are that the overall appearance of the gum does not quite match other stamps of this issue (gum is too crackly) and if you look under 10x magnification, the gum stops just short of the perf. tips, which it never would on a stamp with OG. This is an excellent reference example of an expert re-gumming job. Unitrade values this at $75. The stamp offered here grades 65 as follows:

Centering/margins: 35/70
Paper freshness: 5/5
Colour: 5/5
Impression: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
Perforations: 10/10
