3727   Image30c Treasury, Soft Paper (O112). Beautifully centered with wide margins, deep rich color, bold cancels, Extremely Fine, a very rare stamp in this exceptional used condition, since last offering this stamp in 2008 this is still the only sound and centered example we have encountered, it is probably the finest used example known, ex "Tahoe", with 2003 and 2008 P.S.E. certificates (XF 90; SMQ $850.00), no other used examples are graded by P.S.E. -- probably because there is no point in grading a faulty stamp -- we do not know the basis of the SMQ value, but the last two times we have offered this stamp it realized $1,600 and $2,700 hammer (Image)

3731 og Image3c State, "Sepcimen" Error (O59Sa). Without gum as issued, bright color, centered to top right with perfs just touching at top, completely sound

FINE. AN EXTREMELY RARE SOUND EXAMPLE OF THE 3-CENT STATE DEPARTMENT "SEPCIMEN" ERROR. WE RECORD ONLY EIGHT EXAMPLES AND IT IS POSSIBLE THAT NO ADDITIONAL COPIES EXIST.

Only 793 copies of the 3c State Special Printing were sold, but it is not known how the stamps were taken from the sheets or if full sheets were exhausted before breaking a subsequent sheet. If full sheets were used, then only eight can possibly exist. Only five were recorded by Markovits (2004 Bennett sale). We are aware of eight, including one in the Miller collection (on extended loan by The New York Public Library to the Smithsonian National Postal Museum); five privately-owned examples (the Lewenthal, Combs, Sheriff, Markovits and Golden copies); plus this stamp and the example offered in lot 3732. Both of these latter two examples are newly certified. Among the eight we record, at least half have a small fault.

3733 S Image$2.00 State, Specimen Ovpt. (O68S). Without gum as issued, bright color, tiny thin speck at bottom left

FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE EXAMPLE OF THE $2.00 STATE DEPARTMENT SPECIAL PRINTING. ONLY 32 WERE SOLD.

In March 1875 the Post Office Department initiated a program to make reproductions, reprints, re-issues and special printings of all past and present issues available for purchase at face value through the office of the Third Assistant Postmaster General in Washington, D.C. The official announcement stated in part "The official stamps cannot be used except for the official business of the particular Department for which provided... All of the specimens will be ungummed; and the official stamps will have printed across the face the word 'Specimen,' in small type."

Of the 32 sold, Markovits estimated that approximately 20 are known (Bennett sale). Ex Lietzow, Sheriff, Lewenthal and Price. Illustrated in Combs. With 2018 P.F. certificate (Image)
