THE „DALE-LICHTENSTEIN“ 12 CENTS PALE BLUE

1850-51, 12 cents black on pale blue, Townsend Type D, with initials of postal clerk Wight „EDW“, cut square with close to clear margins and showing circular frame-line intact, with light central July 1851 Berbice datestamp, very rare; (SG £40’000).

The finest cut-square example of nine recorded; unmatched in quality by any other cut-square single we could find in our records, exhibiting full margins all around (two recorded with this feature), clearly showing the denomination and the frame circle, and additionally in perfect condition. An extremely fine and desirable gem.
