Sale Number 1143, Lot Number 3224, Canada - Pence and Cents IssuesCANADA, 1857, 6p Reddish Purple, Very Thick Soft Wove (10; SG 23), CANADA, 1857, 6p Reddish Purple, Very Thick Soft Wove (10; SG 23)CANADA, 1857, 6p Reddish Purple, Very Thick Soft Wove (10; SG 23). Disturbed original gum, h.r., large margin at right, close to in at bottom, rich color, some faults incl. 4mm repaired internal tear and light diagonal crease (neither of which is noticeable from the front)

NEARLY FINE APPEARANCE. DESPITE THE FAULTS, THIS MAY BE THE ONLY ORIGINAL GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 6-PENCE REDDISH PURPLE IN PRIVATE HANDS. A RARITY OF CANADA.

Unused (no gum) examples alone are seldom offered and we suspect that no more than 6-12 examples are known. From our research, we have been unable to find another original gum example in private hands. The only other known, with part original gum, resides in the Tapling Collection at the British Museum.
