CANADA 1859 SG27a Cover from Gananoque with perforated 6d Prince Consort

Stock Code: P201006519

1859 (JU 4) cover from Gananoque to Brockville, franked at double letter rate by 1858-59 6d slate-lilac 'Prince Consort', perf 11¾, tied by two overlapping target cancels, with despatch cds below and arrival backstamp. Slight faults (tear at upper left sensibly reinforced) but a very rare and desirable usage of this short lived issue. Clear BPA cert (2004). [N.B. The perforated 6d was issued in January 1859, giving an effective life-span of just 6 months before the introduction of decimal currency and the 'Cents' issue. The Wayne Smith census records just SEVEN such double rate covers.]
