Lot 435 Newfoundland #42 1880 1c Grey Brown Prince of Wales, mint with full original gum, never hinged, with very large margins, extremely fine. Accompanied by a 2021 Greene Foundation certificate stating “gum very lightly disturbed” with which we humbly disagree. Unitrade CV$400.
Lot 182 Canada 15c Small Queen Engraved Die Essay in Brown Red, on India paper measuring 32 x 41 mm, showing guidelines in the margins. There is an insignificant natural wrinkle in the margin at right, which does not detract from the rarity of this item, which was originally prepared and intended to replace the 15c Large Queen issue, very fine. Illustrated in Hillson and Nixon Canada’s Postage Stamps of the Small Queen Era 1870-1897 on page 29. Ex Bill Simpson, Brigham, Cantor. Estimate C$5,000.
Lot 444 Newfoundland #115a-126i 1919 1c to 36c Trail of the Caribou Set Imperforate, with each unused (no gum, as issued) value presented in a horizontal pair, all but one have sheet margins at right, and nine of those have a double border line in colour of issue. A remarkable and lovely set which would be a great addition to any serious Newfoundland collection. Ex Professor Albert Hamilton collection (2017). Unitrade CV$4,200.
