Huge margins all around including a substantial sheet margin at left, rich color, well-incised impression, sharp four-ring "41" cancel of Sandwich, U.C.

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).
