Today we begin to feature items of particular interest in our inaugural auction. We will have one item each day leading up to the auction sessions.
Our first item is Lot number 773, Newfoundland #30 – Fishing Schooner – 13c Orange. A stunning lower margin inscription block of six. Incredible combination of brilliant colour, very fine margins and fresh tone. Original, never hinged gum, with natural light disturbance. Ex. Baillie. Unitrade CV$5,400
Ian’s comment: "I like this item because it combines scarcity and quality. Newfoundland #30 is notorious for poor centering and multiples are very scarce."
