Canada #14 (SG#29) 1c Rose Cents Issue Perf. 12 Used on Circular to Lobo, ON XF-85

SKU 323288815029

An immaculate example of a circular sent to the clerk of the Township of Lobo, Ontario. The envelope bears the words: "Printed Matter. Postage Paid" in attractive black lettering. Franked with a fine centered 1c Rose, perf. 12. The stamp is tied to the circular by a clear strike of the 8-bar diamond grid cancellation in use at this time. There are no dates on the envelope, however, from the perforation and the cancellation, this would appear to have been sent after 1864. Unitrade values a F-65 cover at $75. However, this example is worth far more, due to the superior condition. The cover offered here grades XF-85 as follows:

Intactness of the cover: 25/25

Paper freshness from the front: 20/25

Paper freshness from the back: 8/10

Condition of the paper and edges: 10/15
