265 og Image24c Deep Violet, Re-Issue (109). Original gum, lightly hinged, deep rich color and proof-like impression, choice centering with balanced margins

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS IS EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLES OF THE 24-CENT 1861 RE-ISSUE.

The 24c Re-Issue was printed from the original plate of 200 subjects. 10,000 were printed (50 impressions). Only 346 of the 24c were sold; the remaining 9,654 were destroyed on July 16, 1884. The quantity sold for the 24c (346) is close in number to several lower values, including the 12c and 15c (389 and 397, respectively). However, the 24c is scarcer and appears less frequently at auction. It is also one of the three values most difficult to obtain in choice original-gum condition (the others are the 3c and 30c).

With 1967 and 1998 P.F. certificates. With 2004 P.S.E. certificate (OGph, XF 90; SMQ $12,600.00). This is a very conservative grade in our opinion. Viewed in relation to P.S.E.'s grading guide, we feel this is deserving of a 95. In any case, only two stamps grade higher than this 90 (both at 95) (Image)

266 og Image30c Brownish Orange, Re-Issue (110). Original gum, vibrant color as fresh as the day it was printed, bright paper, gorgeous centering with well-proportioned margins

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A STUNNING ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 30-CENT 1861 RE-ISSUE. THIS IS THE MOST DIFFICULT DENOMINATION TO OBTAIN IN SUCH CHOICE CONDITION.

Little space was left on the 30c 1861 plate for vertical rows of perforations between stamps, and the same plate was used for the 1875 Re-Issue. Therefore, well-centered copies with perforations clear at the sides are rare. Only 346 were sold. The remaining 9,654 were destroyed on July 16, 1884. Our Levi records contain 146 unused singles, an unused pair and an unused block of four. Many have margins either touching or in on at least one side. Few of the sound copies retain all or part of their original gum.

EXTREMELY FINE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 90-CENT 1861 RE-ISSUE.

The 90c Re-Issue was printed from the original plate of 200 subjects. 10,000 stamps were printed (50 impressions). Only 317 of the 90c were sold; the remaining 9,683 were destroyed on July 16, 1884. The example offered here, with original-gum, sound and well-centered, is a great rarity.
