Lot 58, Canada 1868 one cent brown red Large Queen, mint block of twelveLot 58 Canada #22 1868 1c Brown Red Large Queen, a mint block of twelve with full original gum and all stamps are never hinged except for two at the bottom centre, which are lightly hinged. Quite a fresh block which has never been folded and shows well centered stamps and good colour. Needless to say that this is a major Large Queen rarity, especially with its full original gum and so many never hinged original gum stamps. Accompanied by a 2021 Greene Foundation certificate which states “tiny black specks on lower left copy” and “missing perforation tips on a few stamps occurred during production process”. These two insignificant points in no way deter from the great rarity of this block. Rsv. $29,000. Unitrade CV$44,000.
