10c Black (2).
Horizontal pair, large margins to clear except just in at top left, bright shade, light strikes of reddish-brown New Brunswick oval grid cancel,
part of a "PAID"
cancel at bottom left, left stamp slight creases, Fine-Very Fine appearance, a remarkable pair which is probably unique with this cancel, ex Garrett ("Elite"), Saadi and Gross, with 1984 and 1990 P.F. certificates, the latter stating "no opinion as to whether these stamps served postal duty after demonetization when cancelled"--demonetized use of the 1847 Issue from Canada is well-established, so who knows what they were thinking when they wrote this opinion--Scott value $8,300.00 as a pair with Canadian cancels
