2014 Rarities of the World continued...

Revenues
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
1216   Image$200.00 Red, Blue & Black, Second Issue, "Small Persian Rug" (R132). Bright colors, outstanding margins and centering, neat "Jany. 29, 1871" manuscript cancel, tiny natural inclusion in neck

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB EXAMPLE OF ONE OF THE MOST COLORFUL STAMPS IN UNITED STATES PHILATELY.

Both the Small and Large "Persian Rug" stamps were printed in sheets of one. Because of their size, the large number of perforations on each stamp, and the fact that they were used on documents which were frequently folded across the stamps, sound examples of the multicolored "Persian Rug" issues are extremely rare.

1217   Image$200.00 Red, Blue & Black, Second Issue, "Small Persian Rug" (R132). Bright fresh colors, choice centering and margins, perfs well clear of design all around, unobtrusive manuscript July 5, 1872 cancel, in our opinion completely sound, but the new P.F. certificate describes "light creases" which are really nothing but the slightest wrinkles -- there was a time when only a document crease or sharp corner crease would be described on a large-format revenue stamp, but now the trivial wrinkles found on such stamps are mentioned on a certificate to make the world safer for humanity

VERY FINE EXAMPLE OF THE $200.00 "SMALL PERSIAN RUG" -- ONE OF THE MOST COLORFUL STAMPS IN UNITED STATES PHILATELY.

Both the Small and Large "Persian Rug" stamps were printed in sheets of one. Because of their size, the large number of perforations on each stamp, and the fact that they were used on documents which were frequently folded across the stamps, sound and centered examples of the multicolored "Persian Rug" issues are extremely rare.

1218   Image$500.00 Red Orange, Green & Black, Second Issue, "Large Persian Rug" (R133). Retains most of its original gum, bright colors and detailed impressions, attractive centering, light "R & I C&C I Co., April 1/72" manuscript cancel

VERY FINE. ONE OF THE FINEST KNOWN EXAMPLES OF THE CELEBRATED $500.00 "LARGE PERSIAN RUG," WHICH IS ONE OF THE MOST COLORFUL AND ELABORATELY ENGRAVED STAMPS IN ALL OF PHILATELY.

Only 210 were issued, and it is safe to say that most examples are faulty to some degree. A document exists from July 24, 1874, detailing the purchaser of each. The Kingsley census records 76 copies, and a handful are known outside of the census.

Kingsley Census No. 18-1. Ex Weill. With 1989 P.F. certificate. Scott Retail is for an example with small faults (Image)
