EXTREMELY FINE. THIS STAMP IS WIDELY ESTEEMED AS THE FINEST USED EXAMPLE OF THE 15-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL INVERT EXTANT. THE COLORS ARE REMARKABLE, THE MARGINS ARE WIDE ALL AROUND, IT HAS A STAR FANCY CANCEL, AND IT IS COMPLETELY SOUND. A TRULY REMARKABLE STAMP.

Our census of 1869 Inverts, published in the February 1999 Chronicle and updated with three new stamps, contains 93 examples of the 15c Invert, including three unused and 90 used (one in the British Library's Tapling collection). Fewer than a dozen examples are sound, and this is considered to be the finest truly sound stamp.

EXTREMELY FINE. THIS STAMP HAS BEEN WIDELY ACKNOWLEDGED AS THE FINEST USED EXAMPLE OF THE 24-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL INVERT IN EXISTENCE. THE COLORS ARE FRESH, THE MARGINS ARE BALANCED, THE ROSETTE CANCEL IS LIGHT, AND IT IS COMPLETELY SOUND. A TRULY PHENOMENAL STAMP IN EVERY RESPECT.

Our published 1869 Invert census (with unpublished updates) contains 89 copies of the perforated 24c Invert, including four unused stamps and used multiples. Of these, only five qualify as "centered" and of these four are either reperfed or have margins added. This stamp stands alone as being sound and centered.
