Lot 775 Newfoundland #15 1860 1sh Orange Heraldic Imperforate, used with an almost socked on the nose strike of a St Pierre & Miquelon dotted (49 dots) lozenge cancel. A stunning stamp with its four huge margins, showing part of the left stamp, with only a light corner crease (not mentioned in cert.), else extremely fine. During this period, Newfoundland fishermen were allowed, by agreement, to drop off their mail in St Pierre, which explains this rare (only a very few recorded in the Pence era) cancel. Accompanied by a 2009 Sismondo certificate. Catalogue value is for a regular used stamp. Rsv. $11,000. Unitrade CV $15,000.
