1324   Image$3.00 Olive Green, Columbian (243a). Near perfect centering with wide and balanced margins, radiant color, corner strike of violet cancel leaves entire design clearly visible

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE $3.00 OLIVE GREEN COLUMBIAN ISSUE WITH A VIOLET CANCEL.

The dollar-value Columbians are rarely found with centering that would qualify for a high numerical grade, but in used condition they are further handicapped by heavy registry cancels, which almost invariably knock points off the final grade. The $3.00 offered here is extraordinary not only for its precise centering and wide margins, but for the vignette-free violet cancel.

With 1989 and 1999 P.F. certificates. With 2006 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $4,850.00). Only three examples of the $3.00 Olive Green Columbian grade higher (at 98) -- none with a colored cancel (Image)
