CANADA 1856 SG8 var Cover from Babys Point with 3d Beaver major re-entry

Stock Code: P201006834

1856 (OC 4) cover from Babys Point to Toronto, franked at single letter rate by 1852-57 3d brown-red 'Beaver' on handmade wove with close to large margins, exceptionally showing a major re-entry (upper pane, R8/10), cancelled by remarkably bold seven ring target (which leaves the re-entry clearly visible), with superb despatch cds at lower left. Backstamped at Chatham (OC 6) and Toronto (OCT 7). Minor cover imperfections, but a rare franking of dramatic appearance. Ex Eaton & Sons 17 Jun 1988 (lot 1090). Unitrade 4xiii (unpriced on cover). [Unlike the listed major re-entry (upper pane, R5/7), this variety shows less dramatic doubling of 'THREE PENCE' but does show very strong doubling of the lower left '3' as well as a horizontal line touching the top of the upper left '3'.]
