CANADA, 1855, 10p Blue (7; SG 15).
Three full and well-balanced margins, the fourth margin is a phenomenal 15mm sheet margin at top,
spectacularly rich color in a dark shade, intense detailed impression, tied by a choice strike of a seven-ring cancel on cover to Norfolk, England, "Peterboro C.W. Ja 25 1855" datestamp, red Liverpool tombstone transit handstamp, receiving backstamp of Feb.13, very minor cover restoration at top edge
EXTREMELY FINE. A MAGNIFICENT COVER BEARING AN INCOMPARABLE 1855 10-PENCE BLUE WITH ENORMOUS SHEET MARGIN USED DURING THE FIRST MONTH OF ISSUE.
We know of no other 1855 10p Blue with a sheet margin approaching this size, either on or off cover. In terms of eye-appeal and overall desirability, this can be considered the finest example known on cover.
Ex Beckeman. With 1973 B.P.A. certificate.
