Canada #15 5c Brownish Vermilion Beaver, 1859-1867 First Cents Issue Lovely Pair Used on April 2, 1866 Cover From Quebec
A very fine cover franked with the 5c brownish vermilion Beaver stamp from the 1859-1867 First Cents Issue. Large oversize cover, which has been reduced slightly on both sides. Sent from Quebec City on April 2, 1866 to what appears to me St. Imphalabeauer. Franked with a lovely pair of the brownish vermilion, perf. 12., which is quite well centered for a pair from this issue. Tied to the cover by a Quebec duplex cancel. There is one file fold horizontally near the bottom half of the cover, and the reduction at the sides, but overall this is very fine, based on the overall appearance. Est. $75-$100.
