Lot 121 Canada #43 1890s 6c red brown Small Queen, mint with full original gum, never hinged. This remarkable stamp is fresh and has four large, even margins, extremely fine. Accompanied by a 2016 Greene Foundation certificate. Unitrade CV$1,200. (See also lot 122 for another almost as nice.)
Lot 179 1890s 6c red brown, mint with sheet selvedge at top showing a dramatic double impression of whole top of stamp, including CANADA POSTAGE printed on selvedge. Full shiny gum, never hinged and very well centered. The stamp has a minor diagonal gum bend, mentioned for strict accuracy which does not detract from this stunning error. Superb eye appeal, very fine and quite possibly unique. Accompanied by a 2014 Greene Foundation certificate (not mentioning the gum bend). (Unitrade 43 variety)
Two examples of the 6c red brown exist with doubling at the bottom of the design which is not as major or prominent as the doubling at the top of the stamp offered here.
