    Gauthier Frères & Cie. 1856c.: (-) blue, the used example of this legendary stamp, margins touched to good on all sides, thinned and defective at top cancelled by italic monogram "G. F. & C." in blue. Despite faults this stamp represents 50% of the recorded examples - just one other is known - the famous example on large piece of cover (collection Berkinshaw-Smith, Corinphila sale 145, April 2006, lot 3156), this example found by John D. Bowman a collector of Carrier and Private Post stamps, too recently to be included in the Williams census. A rarity of the highest order. Cert. Philatelic Foundation (2003).

    Gauthier Frères & Cie. 1856c.: (-) red, the famous vertical pair, lower stamp with enormous margins all round, the upper stamp touched at right but showing portion of adjoining two stamps at left, used on large piece addressed to Chaux des Fonds, endorsed at top "Voie du Havre pr. Le Franc-C(omptois)", each stamp cancelled by italic monogram "G. F. & C." in blue. 'Outremer / Havre' partial cds in red at right and charge of '12' décimes to pay. The one remaining reverse part of the piece shows 'Le Havre a Paris' cds (14 March 1857), thus this piece was carried on the same sailing as the only known usage of this stamp on full cover (collection Berkinshaw-Smith, Corinphila sale 145, April 2006, lot 3156). Illustrated in 'Encyclopaedia of Rare & Famous Stamps' by L.N.Williams on page 81. Seven recorded examples. A legendary stamp and a great rarity for the connoisseur. Signed A. Diena. Cert.
