2122 og Image1c Deep Brown, Special Printing (J8). Original gum, deep rich color and detailed impression on bright paper

VERY FINE. A RARE SOUND ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE ONE-CENT POSTAGE DUE SPECIAL PRINTING.

The 1c, 2c and 3c are undoubtedly the rarest values of the American Bank Note Co. Postage Due Special Printings, although the sold quantities in the official records are relatively high. William E. Mooz, in an article on the 1c appearing in Chronicle No. 170, May 1996, offers evidence to support his theory that the actual number of true Special Printings sold was significantly lower than the reported figures. For the 1c, Mooz estimates 500 sold, but it is possible that as many as 400 purchased by G. B. Calman were destroyed. It is widely accepted that nearly 9,000 1c stamps sold as Special Printings were actually regular issues.

2123 og Image2c Deep Brown, Special Printing (J9). Large part original gum, bright color and crisp impression, light diagonal crease, few thin spots

VERY FINE APPEARING ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1879 2-CENT POSTAGE DUE SPECIAL PRINTING.

The reported sale figures for the rare 1c, 2c and 3c Postage Due Special Printings probably include orders filled with regular stamps, as all three are far rarer than the reported sales numbers would suggest. This is rarely offered with any form of original gum.

2124° ng Image3c Deep Brown, Special Printing (J10). Unused (no gum), bright color and detailed impression, choice centering for this difficult issue

EXTREMELY FINE. THE 3-CENT IS THE RAREST OF THE 1879 POSTAGE DUE SPECIAL PRINTINGS.

Although 436 copies were reported sold, it is believed that 100 copies were destroyed in the Calman lot. A thorough search of the marketplace, combined with conversations with dealers and collectors, has confirmed the extreme rarity of this stamp in sound centered condition. This example is one of the finest known.
