114 og Image3c Pigeon Blood Pink (64a). Original gum, lightly hinged, radiant color in the true Pigeon Blood Pink shade, light corner creases at top left and bottom left not mentioned on accompanying certificate

FINE APPEARANCE. THE 1861 3-CENT PIGEON BLOOD PINK IS EASILY ONE OF THE RAREST OF THE 1861 ISSUE STAMPS TO OBTAIN IN UNUSED CONDITION. WE HAVE OFFERED ONLY ONE OTHER SINCE 1993, AND THE PHILATELIC FOUNDATION HAS CERTIFIED FEWER THAN A SIX.

The 3c Pigeon Blood Pink is one of the rarest of all 1861-66 Issue shades in original-gum condition. We have offered only three since keeping computerized records, including the Whitman copy in 2009, one with a piece out in 1993, and the stamp offered here. The Philatelic Foundation has certified two others, both with faults and off center, bringing the total to four certified by the P.F. plus one uncertified offered by us in 1993. The P.F. has also previously certified one other as genuine, but it was withdrawn when resubmitted and so needs to be reexamined. The Miller collection (owned by The New York Public Library and now displayed at the Smithsonian National Postal Museum) contains another, but it is not available to collectors.

With 1958 P.F. certificate. The Pigeon Blood Pink shade was first listed in Scott in 1957. (Image)
