1850-51, 12 cents black on blue, Townsend Type A, with initials of postal official Wight “EDW”, cut round in a nonagon with close to good margins clear of the circular frame-line, excellent impression showing a deep vibrant colour and cancelled by clear 2 May 1851 Demerara datestamp; (SG £11’000).
Cut round examples of the 12 cents are even rarer to find than in the cut square version, although they are catalogued in S.G. for a bit less than one third of the cut square examples. In sound condition, showing full margins all around, we have recorded only six singles in private hands. A great rarity in this outstandingly good state of preservation.
