1083° og ImageNEWFOUNDLAND, 1860, 1sh Orange, Handmade Paper without Mesh (15; SG 15). Original gum, lightly hinged, large even margins, vivid fresh color and sharp impression, pristine condition, Ferrary's small purple trefoil backstamp, neatly signed on back by Alberto Diena in pencil

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. ONLY A FEW ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLES EXIST OF THE NEWFOUNDLAND 1860 ONE-SHILLING ORANGE ON HANDMADE PAPER WITHOUT MESH -- SCOTT AND STANLEY GIBBONS NUMBER 15 -- AND THIS IS WITHOUT QUESTION THE FINEST EXAMPLE OF THIS MAJOR BRITISH NORTH AMERICAN RARITY. A MAGNIFICENT STAMP WITH FERRARY PROVENANCE.

The Newfoundland One-Shilling stamps come from three printings, distinguished by paper and/or color. The first was issued on January 1, 1857 -- it was printed in Scarlet Vermilion on thick wove paper with a distinct mesh pattern produced by the wire screen upon which the wood pulp was laid (Scott 9, SG 9). The second printing was in 1860 in the Orange color (or Orange-Vermilion in SG Catalogue) on handmade paper without mesh (Scott 15, SG 15). The 1860 paper was watermarked "STACEY WISE/1858" in outline letters on two lines, but only part of each printed sheet received the watermark -- no unused examples of the One-Shilling are recorded with the watermark. In addition to the "Stacey Wise" paper, there are a few examples of the One-Shilling Orange on laid paper (horizontal or vertical), which are believed to be proof impressions on a type of note paper (Pratt, The Pence Issues of Newfoundland 1857-1866, pages 103-105). Finally, the third and last printing was made in 1861 in Rose color on similar or identical "Stacey Wise" paper (Scott 23, SG 23).

The 1857 Scarlet Vermilion is very scarce in used condition and rare in unused condition (especially so with original gum). The 1860 Orange is much rarer than the 1857 Scarlet Vermilion -- unused examples are extremely rare, and only a few have original gum. The 1861 Rose is very common in unused condition, but quite scarce genuinely used.

This superb 1860 Orange stamp is the finest unused example with original gum. Only two others can be compared to it in terms of margins and soundness, but neither of those has original gum. It was featured in the second sale of the famous Ferrary collection (October 13-15, 1921, lot 562), and the back corner has Ferrary's small purple trefoil handstamped mark. We have been unable to trace its provenance after Ferrary, but it has a 1969 certificate issued by Alberto Diena, which indicates it was located in a European collection. This is believed to be the first auction offering of this stamp since the 1921 Ferrary sale, nearly a century ago.

Ex Ferrary (Second Sale, October 13-15, 1921, lot 562). With 1969 A. Diena photo certificate and 2017 B.P.A. certificate. 2018 Stanley Gibbons value £35,000 (Image)
