Lot Sym. Lot Description  
1293° og ImageNEW BRUNSWICK, 1860, 5c Connell (5; SG 13). Large part original gum, rich color, some blunt or irregular perfs as is almost always the case on this stamp

A FINE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 5-CENT CONNELL STAMP. PERHAPS 50-60 EXIST.

Connell, a provincial postmaster, had his own portrait engraved on the 5c stamp instead of Queen Victoria. Once this was discovered the entire printing of the Connell stamp was seized and destroyed. Some escaped destruction and today are very rare and much sought-after stamps.

The 5c Connell stamp is usually found with poor centering. The perforations are nearly always damaged from scissor-separation or are roughly pulled apart, the result of poor perforating. They also usually have creases, thins, and/or lack gum. The example offered here, being essentially sound and with large part original gum, is in far better condition than most of the other existing examples.

1295 c ImageNEWFOUNDLAND, 1930, 50c on 36c Olive Green, Columbia Air Post (C5; SG 191). Position 3 in the setting, tied by "St. John's East Newf'd Sp 27 30" circular datestamp on cover to Montreal, stamp is unusually well centered and with deep intense color

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A RARE COVER WITH THE 1930 COLUMBIA AIR POST STAMP.

The Newfoundland government overprinted 300 copies of the 36c "Caribou" issue for use on this flight. Only 100 were actually used: 65 from St. John's and 35 from Harbour Grace. Five unused blocks of four are known. After flying 2,650 miles, the plane was forced down at Tresco Island, off the coast of England. The "Columbia" was able to finish the flight, landing at Croydon Airport on October 13.

This cover is unusual for two reasons. It is the only recorded example with the St. John's East postmark, and the only recorded used on a domestic (though overfranked) letter.
