THE FINEST SINGLE EXAMPLE KNOWN

1852 Waterlow 1 cent black on magenta, a huge margined example showing a large portion of adjoining stamp at right, used on fragment by uncommonly neat Demerara cds on 12 August 1853, brilliant vibrant colour and without any rubbing as usually found; (SG £5’500).

An extremely fine exhibition gem in an unbeatable state of preservation, the finest single example available and, consequently in this issue usually plagued by faults, of enormous significance.
