We are resurrecting the neglected blog to tell you about a fantastic item we have recently acquired. The limited space in our price list simply can not do justice to this exceptionally rare Newfoundland pane of 50 stamps. Here it is, with a full description below:
This partial pane shows the 1897 Queen Victoria era 1 cent on 3 cent issue, grey-purple, in 5 rows of 10 stamps. The complete setting is here: type I on rows 1-4, and the last row starting from left with one type IIa, seven copies of type II, and two copies of type III. The catalog numbers are Scott 75-77 and SG80-82. There is some perf separation between the 4th and 5th rows, and thinning on stamps 1,2,3, and 7 of the bottom row. There are 24 Never Hinged stamps on the sheet. The piece came with an explanatory article with even more information. This is truly an extraordinary exhibition quality rarity.
Scott catalog value $6900. SOLD!
