English: Five cent postage stamp of the colony of New Brunswick (now a province of Canada), featuring the image of Charles Connell (1810 – June 28, 1873). Cornell was a Canadian politician, now remembered mainly for placing his image on a postage stamp. In 1858, Connell was appointed Postmaster General of the colony, and in 1859 he chose to depict himself on the 5-cent stamp, instead of Queen Victoria. In an effort to stem the criticism and charges of extreme arrogance, he offered to buy up all the stamps and burned them publicly on the front lawn of his house. He also resigned his office as postmaster general. It is unknown how many stamps survived, but they number no more than a few dozen and are now extremely rare.
Français : Copie du fameux timbre de Charles Connell. Connell (1810-1873) était un marchand et un homme politique canadien du Nouveau-Brunswick. Sous le gouvernement de Charles Fisher, il est nommé Maître général des Postes de 1858 à 1861. C'est durant cette période qu'un évènement le fait passer à la postérité : alors qu'une nouvelle série de timbres est émise en 1860, les Néo-brunswickois constatent avec surprise que le timbre de 5 cents, émis à 500 000 exemplaires, est illustré par le portrait de Connell lui-même. Le scandale est grand, le timbre est retiré et un nouveau voit le jour avec l'effigie de la reine Victoria, tandis que Connell démissionne quelque temps plus tard.
