Pence, Cents covers from ‘Consort Collection of Classic Canadian Postal History’ offered

Earlier this month, the U.K. firm Stanley Gibbons began offering a hoard of nearly 70 “Pence” and “Cents” covers as part of the Consort Collection of Classic Canadian Postal History.

The covers were recently purchased by Stanley Gibbons from a local U.K. collector.

Prices range from £75 (about $130 Cdn.) for an 1868 cover to Québec franked with an 1859 five-cent “Beaver” stamp to £12,000 (about $20,500 Cdn.) for an 1858 transatlantic cover bearing a unique franking for the 10-pence Cunard Line packet rate.
