THIS IS ONE OF ONLY FOUR EXAMPLES OF T3c Rose Red, Ty. I (11). Huge margins all around incl. part of seven adjoining stamps, brilliant color on crisp paper, unobtrusive strike of blue cancel

EXTREMELY FINE GEM AND THE ESSENCE OF PERFECTION. THIS IS ONE OF ONLY FOUR EXAMPLES OF THE 3-CENT 1851 ISSUE TO ACHIEVE THE P.S.E. GRADE OF GEM 100 JUMBO.

Many collectors have a tendency to discount how difficult it is to find imperforate classics in such superb condition. The assumption is that there are multiples which can be split to "make" perfect singles. However, one would need a lightly-cancelled block of nine, with no wrinkles or other minor defects, to produce a single such as the one offered here.

Ex Tahoe. 1997 P.F. certificate no longer accompanies. With 2008 P.S.E. certificate (Gem 100 Jumbo, SMQ $450.00 as 98, unpriced in the higher grades). Only one other example of No. 11 and two of No. 11A have achieved this perfect grade (Image)
