CEYLON 1857 SG6 Used

Stock Code: P212012832

1857-59 6d purple-brown, wmk star, imperforate horizontal pair with good to huge (at top and bottom) margins and lovely colour, very lightly cancelled by crisp ovals of bars. Wmk lines at foot demonstrate lower marginal position. Right stamp with unobtrusive vertical crease, still a beautiful pair, exceptionally retaining much original gum on reverse, and with a classic pedigree. Ex Burrus (RL 3/4/1963, lot 596) and Baron de Worms (Harmer 20/6/1938, lot 160 - described as "of superb appearance"). [It is noteworthy that this was the only one of six pairs of this stamp in the de Worms collection with complete margins.]
