535     14a imageSicily, 1859 Ferdinand II 50g chocolate. (Pos. 26), with wide to full margins all around, tied by horseshoe cancel and almost complete Civitavecchia Dalla Via Di Mare town cancel on fragment (Presumably from a former single franking similar to the unique known cover with the same town cancellation)., Very Fine, a wonderful Sicilian rarity, with 1995 Sorani certificate.
Sassone No. 14a; €42,000 ($51,660); Estimate $2,000 - 3,000.

The 50gr is scarcer on piece than on cover.

This item is probably unique in having the town cancel tie the stamp to the piece : very scarce on Sicilian stamps.
