848 c Image3c Pigeon Blood Pink (64a). Exceptional depth of color in as true a Pigeon Blood Pink as we have encountered, tied by neat target cancel with "Nashua N.H. Sep. 5, 1861" double-circle datestamp on buff cover to Weymouth Mass., Sep. 16, 1861 docketing at top

AN ATTRACTIVE COVER WITH THE 3-CENT 1861 ISSUE IN THE RARE PIGEON BLOOD PINK SHADE -- FINE CENTERING WITH COLOR AS RICH AND VIBRANT AS WE HAVE EVER SEEN.

The Pigeon Blood Pink shade, named for the rare ruby, is regarded as the most distinctive and rarest of the Pink shades. Unfortunately, the special bluish-pink tint of the true Pigeon Blood Pink is sensitive to light and other environmental factors. Therefore, examples kept in the dark over many years retain the true Pigeon Blood color, while others have lost it. In terms of color, the stamp on this cover is among the finest we have ever encountered. Stanley B. Ashbrook agreed and signed the cover on December 27, 1951, with the statement "The 3c 1861 on this cover is a gorgeous example of the Pigeon Blood. I doubt if a finer example could be found."
