Canada – 1859 5c vermilion « The Beaver ». Negative glass support cliché with painted surrounding to highlight the design and create contrast, a unique item of great visual impact for exhibition; a new discovery about the work of Sperati, as this reproduction is unknown in the handbooks on his work; the vermilion colour used by Sperati typically increases in density and thus being able to provide a sufficient contrast to give a good matrix.
