Nautical Nugget — Weekly Feature #419

Edward VII Key Type 1/2d. bicolour pair.  Used with a virtually complete ‘St. John NB Ship Letter’ postmark Very Fine.  This Philatelic Nugget harkens back to a time when St. John was a very important centre of commerce and ship building.  A time when trade between the Caribbean and the Maritime Provinces was much more active than today.  This is a very scarce and highly desirable item, especially in light of the fact that it is largely complete.  Our Price: $250.
