This stamp is an exception to the norm and is highlighted by the fact that this is only the second unused example we have offered in over 20 years.

Unused (no gum), marvelously large margins to full at top left, margins the size of which are very rarely seen, exceptionally fresh color, a crisp and proof-like impression on particularly bright paper

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. WITHOUT QUESTION, THIS IS ONE OF THE FINEST UNUSED EXAMPLES OF THE SIX-PENCE SCARLET VERMILION IN EXISTENCE. THE OVERALL FRESHNESS AND SHEER SIZE OF THE MARGINS ARE INCOMPARABLE TO NEARLY ALL THE OTHERS WE HAVE ENCOUNTERED.

Any collector of Newfoundland is well aware of the difficulty in finding a large-margined 6p Scarlet Vermilion. After careful review of other major named sales, we had great difficulty in finding others that compare to the one offered here. Our Power Search reveals only two other unused examples (with and without gum), each with very tight margins to touching. Our census, available at our website at https://siegelauctions.com/census/newfoundland/scott/6 , records eleven unused, two with original gum and nine without. Of those, only six are sound with no others compare to the margins this stamp possesses.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. AN IMPRESSIVELY SUPERB UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE 6-1/2-PENCE SCARLET VERMILION OF THE FIRST ISSUE. A RARE STAMP OF NEWFOUNDLAND IN THIS PRISTINE QUALITY.

The 6-1/2p is notorious for tight and/or touching margins. Those that do have margins are often plagued by the myriad of faults associated with this issue. This stamp is one of the rare exceptions.

Our exhaustive search of numerous well-known Newfoundland collections came up with very few examples that have any trace of original gum - most are unused examples without gum, are tightly margined and/or have faults. This stamp would be a major addition to any serious Newfoundland collection. Our census, available at our website at https://siegelauctions.com/census/newfoundland/scott/9 , records 29 unused, ten with original gum. Of those with gum, only five are sound and only one other has large margins.

Examples which have survived are often found with margins touching on at least one side and/or suffer gum issues (or have been completely removed). Our census, available at our website at https://siegelauctions.com/census/newfoundland/scott/16 , records 29 unused, only eighteen with original gum.
