EXTREMELY FINE. EASILY THE FINEST EXISTING ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1859 10-CENT PRINCE ALBERT IN THE BLACK BROWN SHADE. ONE OF THE RAREST ORIGINAL-GUM STAMPS OF CANADA WITH LESS THAN HALF A DOZEN THOUGHT TO STILL EXIST.
The stamp offered here combines the trifecta of perfection that a fastidious stamp collector seeks - original gum, well-centered and sound condition. A careful review of major named Canada sales will quickly show just how rare an original-gum example in this condition truly is. Most eventually never acquire an example, while others settle for a used copy (scarce in its own right) or trial color.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. ARGUABLY THE FINEST ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 17-CENT BLUE PERFORATED CARTIER IN UNRIVALED CONDITION.
