Province of Canada -- Pence Issues Scott #1-13
LotNo. Symbol Cat No. Lot Description
1 ng 1a image1851 3d orange red Beaver Imperforate on Laid Paper. Canada's first stamp, a three penny value paying the domestic rate and showing a beaver was engraved by Alfred Jones using a very similar design proposed by (later Sir) Sanford Fleming. One census of unused mint laid paper three penny beavers put the number at 18. Although this might be a little bit low, unfortunately many of these are cut into or have faults and some are in institutional collections. It is likely that fewer than a handful of very fine four margin number ones are in private collections.

This stamp has two Certificates of Authenticity: A 1985 Greene Foundation Certificate states"...Mint, O.G., genuine..." and a 2015 Greene Foundation Certificate states ..."#1a, unused, on laid paper, orange red shade, genuine in all respects". It is unclear to us what happened to the gum after 1985 but assume that the authenticity of the "original gum" was questioned and a previous owner soaked off the gum. For the record there is a tiny faint crease entirely in the lower right margin which was not mentioned in either certificate; this could be literally cut away and there would still be four full large margins.

This stamp with fresh colour and full margins is a very rare example of a very fine Canada's first stamp.

2 ng 2b image1851 6d brown purple Consort Imperforate on Laid Paper. Canada's second stamp, the six penny paying the rate to USA or double domestic, features Queen Victoria's Consort Prince Albert was engraved by Alfred Jones using several sources. This stamp is significantly scarcer in used condition than the beaver and also even rarer in unused condition than the three penny.

This stamp has two Certificates of Authenticity, both from the Greene Foundation. The first from 1994 and second from 2015 states "...2b unused on laid paper, brown purple shade, genuine in all respects." Neither Certificate mentions the droplet of printers' ink in the upper right corner.

This stamp with deep fresh colour and full margins is a very rare example of a very fine Canada's second stamp.

3 og 3 image1851 12d black Queen Victoria Imperforate on Laid Paper. The twelve penny was recognized from the earliest days of philately as rare and desirable. The Chalon portrait was copied by Bahamas, Queensland, Tasmania, New Zealand, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia as well as other British Colonies.

This stamp was sold by Charles Phillips and was owned by Charles Lathrop Pack as the top stamp in a vertical pair. It is position 60 within a plate of 100. The pair was sold at auction in 1944 and again in 1959 but by 1976 it had been separated and received a Certificate from Herbert Bloch. With deep colour and a clear distinct impression, four large margins, full original gum lightly hinged, easily visible laid lines, fresh in all respects and a full sheet margin at right put this stamp in the first rank. Among the very fine mint twelve penny stamps, there are usually three which are regarded as being the most desirable. The full sheet margin of this gem compares favourably with another exceptional twelve penny, the Dale-Lichtenstein single from position 80 with an irregular sheet margin. As a result a number of advanced collectors confirm the opinion that the example from the Outaouais Collection is the most desirable and best of the best.

This stamp has three Certificates of Authenticity. These are from 1976 the Friedl Expert Committee, 1983 Greene Foundation, and 2013 Greene Foundation "Scott No. 3, mint, O.G., position 60, genuine in all respects."

13 O 4 image1850s 3d red Beaver Imperforate Collection of four mostly 4 margin stamps, each cancelled with part of a c.d.s. datestamp, from Cobourg (x2), London and Spring Hill NS (quite rare and believed to be unique on this stamp - see write-up). Accompanied by a description by Bileski explaining the history behind these particular stamps, the fact that they were on display at the National Philatelic Museum and explaining how difficult, even rare it is to obtain nice c.d.s. cancels on Pence issues. Apparently, when the collection was purchased long ago, the buyer paid double the catalogue value for these, which Bileski thought was a bargain. Postal regulations of the period instructed postmasters to use an obliterator to cancel stamps, and use a datestamp elsewhere on the cover to date it. Ex. Dr. Richard Solomon.
