Canada #604var 8c Royal Blue Queen Elizabeth II, 1972-1978 Caricature Issue, A Very Fine Unsevered Coil Pair on Low Fluorescent Paper

Sold out
SKU Lot46

A well centered and very fine NH unsevered vertical pair of the 8c royal blue Queen Elizabeth II coil stamp from the 1972-1978 Caricature Issue on low fluorescent paper. These pairs appear imperforate, but there is a trace of a scoreline between the stamps, and they result when two adjacent coil rolls are carefully unrolled without separating them first. Thus they are not true imperforate between pairs, but are an interesting novelty nonetheless. Unlisted in Unitrade, but we estimate the value of a pair to be $5. The pair offered here grades 80 as follows:

Margins/centering: 50/70

Paper freshness: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Impression: 5/5

Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5

Perforations: 8/10
