SKU Lot4

A very fine mint NH example of the 1c deep yellow Second Ottawa printing Queen Victoria stamp from the 1870-1897 Small Queen Issue, with jumbo margins. There is a small gum bend, which is of little consequence because they are found on most second Ottawa printings made on the very fragile newsprint paper. The reason for this is that the gum has contracted over time and this pulls the paper inward, causing the bend. This is a very beautiful example of the very late printing. Unitrade values this at $180. The stamp offered here grades 84-J as follows:

Centering/margins: 54/70 (jumbo)
Paper freshness: 5/5
Colour: 5/5
Impression: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
Perforations: 10/10
