Description
Canada – 1859 17c, negative glass support cliché on reddish black; Sperati worked from a perforated stamp and probably retouched the design rather substantially to make it appear imperforate and draw in missing portions of the stamp with continuous framelines; an extremely rare example of a reproduction that exists only as working proof and trial exposure, not as a finished reproduction/forgery, no examples of this issue are recorded in the B.P.A. or the Post Museum in Paris. This was one of the latest works of Sperati.
