EXTREMELY FINE GEM. WITHOUT QUESTION, THIS IS ONE OF THE FINEST MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLES OF THE 2-CENT ON BLUISH IN EXISTENCE. THIS MARVELOUS STAMP HAS BEEN AWARDED THE PERFECT GRADE OF GEM 100 BY P.S.E.

The Bluish paper stamps were made as part of an experiment to correct problems with paper shrinkage and spoilage. The existence of this stamp with such superb centering and huge margins is truly remarkable.

With 2007 P.S.E. certificate (Gem 100, unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 98, SMQ $5,300.00 as 98). This is the highest grade awarded to date (one other shares this grade). (Image)

1945 og 4c Orange Brown, Bluish (360).> Lightly hinged, bright shade on nicely blued paper, unusually wide margin at top<><>^FINE. AN ATTRACTIVE EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 4-CENT ON BLUISH PAPER FROM POSITION ONE IN THE
ORIGINAL SHEET OF 100.^<><>According to J4c Orange Brown, Bluish (360). Lightly hinged, bright shade on nicely blued paper, unusually wide margin at top

FINE. AN ATTRACTIVE EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 4-CENT ON BLUISH PAPER FROM POSITION ONE IN THE ORIGINAL SHEET OF 100.

According to Johl (Vol. 1, page 175), the only source of the 4c and 8c Bluish stamps was the archives of the Post Office Department. Approximately 80 of each were traded for rare stamps missing from the archives. Given the failed experimental nature of the paper mixture, it is no surprise that virtually all copies are off-center to some extent.

This stamp was originally part of the top left corner sheet-margin block of four seen in the Colonel E. H. R. Green collection (Part VII, lot 620, J. C. Morganthau & Co., Dec. 1-8, 1942). The top right stamp from the same block appeared in a Simmy's sale in 1976 with the top sheet selvage intact. The stamp offered here was offered with the corner sheet selvage removed as early as 1970 (Peter Kenedi sale). It was acquired by the present owner in the Siegel 1975 Rarities Sale (lot 155). The corner selvage was probably removed to make the stamp fit into an album space.
