134° og Image3c Blue, Re-Issue (125). Original gum, lightly hinged, deep rich color and proof-like impression, choice centering with balanced margins

EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 3-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL RE-ISSUE. AN EXTREMELY DIFFICULT STAMP TO OBTAIN IN SUCH PRISTINE CONDITION.

Original sales figures show that among the 1869 Pictorial Re-Issues, the 3c and 90c stamps accounted for the smallest number of units sold (1,406 and 1,356, respectively). Overall, the 1869s were popular with stamp collectors, far outselling the 1851-60 and 1861-66 Re-Issue sets. However, the 90c stamp's high denomination and the availability of ordinary 3c stamps limited demand. Today, both are rare, and handling over the years has not been kind to most of the surviving examples. The stamp offered here is one of the finest we have ever encountered.

With 2019 P.F. certificate (XF 90). With 2007 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90; SMQ $12,000.00). Only three stamps in the P.S.E. Population Report grade higher (at 95) (Image)

135 og Image3c Blue, Re-Issue (125). Original gum (slightly browned on bottom half), precise centering, beautiful shade and proof-like impression, bright and fresh

EXTREMELY FINE. A VERY RARE SOUND AND BEAUTIFULLY-CENTERED ORIGINAL-GUM 3-CENT 1869 RE-ISSUE.

Original sales figures show that among the 1869 Pictorial Re-Issues, the 3c and 90c stamps accounted for the smallest number of units sold (1,406 and 1,356, respectively). Overall, the 1869s were popular with stamp collectors, far outselling the 1851-60 and 1861-66 Re-Issue sets. However, the 90c stamp's high denomination and the availability of ordinary 3c stamps limited demand. Today, both are rare, and handling over the years has not been kind to most of the surviving examples. This is a rare sound original-gum copy.

136   Image12c Green, Re-Issue (128). Absolutely perfect centering, wide even margins, deep rich color, clear strike of New York City oval grid, trivial tiny corner creases at top

EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. ONE OF THE MOST ELUSIVE OF THE 1869 RE-ISSUES IN USED CONDITION.

The 12c is the second rarest value of the 1869 Re-issue set in used condition. The Rose book estimates 15-25 extant used copies and SMQ estimates 20 extant. In our opinion, this stamp ranks among the three or four finest in terms of centering and overall appeal.

137   Image15c Brown & Blue, Re-Issue (129). Rich colors and crisp impressions on bright paper, well-struck duplex cancel, beautiful centering with wide and balanced margins

EXTREMELY FINE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 15-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL RE-ISSUE. ONE OF THE FINEST WE HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED.

The Type III design of the 15c Re-Issue is similar to the Type I, except it lacks shading lines around the vignette. The Rose book (p. 104) notes that essays of Type III are known from 1868, indicating this type was contemplated but never used for the original 1869 Issue.

With 1997 P.F. and 2005 P.S.E. certificates (XF 90; SMQ $2,450.00). Only one grades higher (at 95J) (Image)
