2790   Image90c Rose Carmine (166). Brilliant color as fresh as the day it was printed, gorgeous centering with wide and balanced margins, light strike of circular datestamp leaves the Perry vignette unobscured

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A STUNNING USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1873 90-CENT CONTINENTAL BANK NOTE COMPANY ISSUE.

The higher-denomination Bank Note issues were normally heavily cancelled, to prevent re-use. This makes it difficult for collectors looking for high-quality stamps to find a suitable copy. Some criteria (centering, color or cancel) is usually sacrificed when pursuing this issue. The stamp offered here, with unusually wide and balanced margins, bright color and a light cancel, is a true condition rarity.

Ex Renne, Mayer, Dr. Hinrichs and "Natalee Grace". With 1987, 2004 and 2012 P.F. certificates (XF-Superb 95). By way of comparison, the highest grade awarded by both The Philatelic Foundation and P.S.E. is 95 (Image)

Huge interpane margin at right with part of guide arrow at bottom, Jumbo margins other sides, brilliant color, face-free cork cancel, Extremely Fine Gem, a beautiful stamp which we are amazed has escaped the reperfer's punch (perhaps the guide arrow will dissuade future such efforts), ex Geisler, with 1997 and 2007 P.F. certificates (Image)
