Lot 34 Canada #13 1859 6d Brown Violet Consort, Perforated 11¾, mint with full original gum, slightly disturbed. This lovely stamp has deep rich colour and a crisp impression. A very well centered stamp as well, as even the nicest mint examples are often off-center. There are two clear intersecting guidelines in the bottom left margin, adding to the desirability of this stamp. A truly stunning stamp in all respects, quite fresh and very fine. Accompanied by 1966 and 2007 Philatelic Foundation certificates, as well as a 2020 Greene Foundation certificate. Surely one of the nicest mint examples of this rare stamp.
