Unlike its more common 8c counterpart, the 6c is an extremely rare stamp. Our recently updated census contains only seven unused and 22 used examples of this rarity which have been certified as genuine by the P.F. Of the 22 used copies certified by the Philatelic Foundation, sixteen have perfs either close or touching the design (including both copies in the only recorded used pair and one with straight edge)

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A MAGNIFICENT USED EXAMPLE OF THE $1.00 TYPE I WATERMARKED BUREAU ISSUE, WHICH HAS BEEN AWARDED THE GRADE OF SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E. -- EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST COPIES IN EXISTENCE.

The dollar-value Bureaus are rarely found with centering that would qualify for a high numerical grade, but in used condition they are further handicapped by heavy registry cancels, which almost invariably knock points off the final grade. The $1.00 Type I 1895 Issue offered here is extraordinary not only for its precise centering and wide margins, but the lightly-struck cancel leaves the entire design visible.

With 2002 P.F. and 2008 P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98, SMQ $1,950.00). This is the highest grade awarded to date and only one other shares this lofty grade. (Image)
