Kanada (CANADA & B.N.A) - Neubraunschweig 1853
Katalog Scott 1
New Brunswick, 1851, 3 pence red, very fine with fresh colour and wide margins all around tied by rare blue grill-cancel on folded cover from "ST. ANDREWS DE 6 1853" to "ST JOHN NEWBRUNSWICK DE 7 1853" (both cds on reverse), Philatelic Foundation certificate (2010). Ex. Consul Weinberger Collection.
A blue cancel on a single 3 pence is virtually unknown, the cancel generally reserved for higher franked mailings. According to the book: "The Pence Covers of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick 1851-1860" by George B. Arfken and Charles G. Firby, also a very early domestic cover: they only record 7 before this date. (1851 = 2, 1852 = 1, 1853 = 5).
