FINE. AN ELUSIVE SOUND EXAMPLE OF THE 24-CENT BLACKISH VIOLET, A SHADE VARIETY THAT IS MISSING IN MOST ADVANCED CLASSIC UNITED STATES COLLECTIONS.

A thorough search through past auction catalogues will demonstrate how rare this stamp is in both used and sound condition. Our census of Scott 78c, available at our website at https://siegelauctions.com/census/us/scott/78c , records a total of 48 used examples of this issue, of which only 38 have been certified as genuine by The Philatelic Foundation. Some were certified a long time ago and need to be reconfirmed. We also record nine on covers. Very few are confirmed as sound.

Census no. 78c-CAN-44. With 2013 P.F. certificate (Image)
