Canada 1852-57 6d slate-violet (slate grey), "Prince Albert", handmade wove paper, SG9.

A beautiful fine mint example of the early impression 6d slate-grey on wove paper. Good to large margins, with re-distributed gum; faint horizontal crease and very small thin. Benefits in particular from good impression and with nice colour.

A very collectable example of this exceptionally rare stamp and in better condition than most surviving examples.

Accompanied with a Vincent Graves Green Certificate of Authenticity (2018). Scott #5.
