Canada Small Queen Issue

Half Cent
LotNo. Symbol Cat No. Lot Description
41 E/P   imageSmall Queen Vignette Die Proof, on thin paper measuring 36 x 37 mm. Mr. Hillson writes "Originally made in late 1867 or early 1868 as the vignette for the ½c Large Queen, it was used for the entire Small Queen series up to 1882, when the ½c Small Queen was introduced using a reduced size head, necessary because of its diminutive size. This vignette die proof differs only in its reduced circumference to the Large Queen, cutting the point of the neck, and is doubtless made from a die struck from the larger circumference master die. A rare items and a must have for the serious Small Queen collector. Illustrated in H&N, page 4. (Scan a)
