VERY FINE. EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST OF THE LESS THAN TEN UNUSED RECORDED OF THE 1870 3-CENT COPPER RED WITH PERF 12-1/2. A MAJOR CANADIAN SMALL QUEEN RARITY WHICH IS SELDOM OFFERED.
The early printings of the 3c Copper and Indian Red shades with perforation 12-1/2 occurred when the normal perforating machine was unavailable. Therefore, the perf 12-1/2 machine, which was used for the Canada Bill Stamps, were pressed into service. All sheets with this perforation were eventually sent to the Maritimes. To date, less than ten unused examples are recorded. Most are without gum and many have varying faults and/or grossly off-centered. The stamp offered here is one of the finest examples we have encountered.
