BRITISH GUIANA 1850 SG6 Used 12c black on indigo Cottonreel

Stock Code: P212010102

1850-51 12c indigo 'Cottonreel', Townsend type 'A' (thick rule, break over 'GU' difficult to discern, but position of first 'I' of 'BRITISH' is diagnostic), cut round with frameline complete and close to good margins, indistinct initials, used with large part 'DEMERARA' cds ('2 DE 2 1851'). Absolutely sound, with characteristic colour, and a really fine example of this classic rarity, with the 'indigo' recognised as the scarcest of the three 12c papers. Ex Ferrary, (handstamp on reverse), with BPA cert (2014) stating 'Type D', incorrectly in our opinion.
