Description:

1850-51, 12 cents black on blue, with initials of postal official Wight « EDW », cut round with outstandingly good even margins well clear of the circular frame-line, in an unusual Prussian blue shade -which is difficult to represent in the scanned version-, exhibiting full Demerara datestamp of 14 January 1851, small part of original cover still adhering to reverse and crossed by archive fold; (SG £11’000).

It is important to remark that this example displays the largest margins of any cut-round 12 cents single, and in addition it exhibits an ideal full strike of the Demerara datestamp, thus being very difficult to find in this issue.

Provenance:

John E. du Pont (Lot 60019, David Feldman SA, June 2014)

Expertise: Signed Bloch, Cert. BPA (2014)
