Stock Code: P201006839
1858 (4 Nov) printed circular ('T.M. CLARK'S FLOUR & GRAIN CIRCULAR') from Toronto to Gardiner, franked by 1852-57 ½d deep rose on machine-made wove with large to very large margins, neatly tied by grid cancel which leaves portrait largely clear. Choice quality and very rare in such wonderful condition. Only 90 such frankings recorded in the Wayne Smith census, and surely one of the finest extant. Ex Dale Lichtenstein (H.R. Harmer 18 Nov 1968, lot 118), H.R. Harmer 15 Dec 1976 (lot 3023), and Sotheby Parke Bernet 21 May 1980 (lot 61).
