Sale 1098, Lot 250, Canada, Pence and Cents IssuesCANADA, 1851, 12p Black, Laid Paper (3; SG 4). Unused (no gum), margins all around, sharp impression, repaired along right margin and bottom left

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A HANDSOME UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE FAMOUS CANADA 1851 12-PENCE BLACK ON LAID PAPER. A CLASSIC ICON OF CANADA AND A MAJOR RARITY OF THE WORLD.

The first Pence Issues of Canada were printed by the New York firm of Rawdon, Wright, Hatch & Edson, the same firm that printed the New York Postmaster's Provisional and United States 5c and 10c 1847 Issue. The Pence issues, and particularly the 12-pence, show the same fine quality of engraving that distinguishes the U.S. 1847 Issue. The stamps were printed early in 1851 (12p issued June 14), at the same time that RWH&E's contract for providing United States stamps was coming to an end. Only 1,450 examples were sold with the balance of 51,000 printed destroyed.

With 1991 Brandon certificate. Unitrade C$150,000.00
