EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SPECTACULAR USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 HALF-PENNY ROSE POSSESSING MANY IMPRESSIVE ATTRIBUTES.
Of special note is the "41" four-ring cancel. Unitrade assigns it a "Very Rare" rarity factor of 8 (out of 10) and notes it is "generally faintly struck". This example is unusually well-struck. The listed catalogue values do not take the cancel into account (and will likely prove irrelevant to the final hammer price).
Ex Reford, Bertram, Fox, Tamasin, Lubke and Cantor. With 1974 B.P.A. and 2011 P.F. certificates. Unitrade C$1,000.00
