THE “AMUNDSEN” 12 CENTS INDIGO EXAMPLE
1850-51, 12 cents black on indigo, so-called sugar paper shade, with initials of postal clerk Wight “EDW”, cut square with close to good margins on two sides, light 1851 Berbice datestamp, tiny thins which are probably more due to the nature of the primitive sugar paper than to real abrasion; (SG £45’000).
The rarest shade of the 12 cents value, of which only eleven examples are recorded according to Townsend.
