VERY FINE. THE 15-CENT 1873 CONTINENTAL IS AMONG THE MOST ELUSIVE OF THE REGULAR BANK NOTE ISSUES IN THIS CHOICE ORIGINAL-GUM CONDITION.

Although defined by a secret mark, the 15c Continental, Scott 163, is very difficult to distinguish from its National counterpart, Scott 152. Certain shades and impressions of the 15c Continental closely match certain National printings, and the secret mark is often undetectable. However, the stamp offered here has what we believe are characteristics unique to Continental's work. The shade is very bright and yellowish. The secret mark in the upper left triangle is also prominently featured in this impression. There is simply no question that this is a 15c Continental. Off-center stamps are the norm, and original gum is a rare commodity in this issue.

30-CENT 1873 CONTINENTAL PRINTING IN30c Gray Black (165). Original gum, lightly hinged, attractive charcoal gray shade, fine impression on fresh paper, enormous margins

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLES OF THE 30-CENT 1873 CONTINENTAL PRINTING IN EXISTENCE. A SUPERB STAMP IN EVERY RESPECT.

Among the various Bank Note issues, the 30c 1873 Continental printing deserves special note. The 30c Continental is extremely rare in any original-gum condition that approaches this example. Blocks have always been rare -- for example, Caspary did not have one, Lilly had one well-centered block of four and an off-center block of six -- which means that singles could not be harvested from multiples.
