THE BEST MARGINED 8 CENTS CUT ROUND EXAMPLE

1850-51, 8 cents black on blue-green, Townsend Type C, initials of postal clerk Wight „EDW“, thin frame, particularly fresh and vibrant colour with astonishingly large margins all around, very light central datestamp of Demerara December 1851 -this being the latest recorded month of usage for the 8 cents; the tiny pinhole and „thin spot at top“ stated in the certificate are almost invisible and were never mentioned in past auction catalogues; very appealing and rare.

One of the finest examples in existence, displaying the largest even margins known for any 8 cents cut-round example; (SG £16’000).
