EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 10-PENCE ON THICK PAPER.

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).

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A WONDERFULLY CHOICE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 HALF-PENNY IN THE DESIRABLE LILAC ROSE SHADE.
