1335 nh Image2c Carmine Lake, Ty. I (249). Mint N.H., beautiful dark shade and proof-like impression on fresh paper, long full perfs all around, mathematically perfect centering with Jumbo margins

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SPECTACULAR ONE-OF-A-KIND MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE UNWATERMARKED 2-CENT TYPE I 1894 ISSUE IN THE CARMINE LAKE SHADE. THIS MAGNIFICENT STAMP HAS BEEN AWARDED THE GRADE OF GEM 100 JUMBO BY P.S.E. -- IT IS THE ONLY EXAMPLE TO ACHIEVE THIS ULTIMATE GRADE.

As collectors of the First Bureau Issue know, great difficulty was experienced in perforating the stamps, either due to poor equipment or improper operation. Choppy, ragged perfs and poor centering are so common on this issue that it is often possible to separate the 1894 unwatermarked stamps from the 1895 watermarked stamps by the appearance of the perforations alone. This example, with precise centering, Jumbo margins and perfectly formed perforations is an extreme condition rarity.

Ex Whitman and Merlin. With 1995 P.F. and 2008 P.S.E. certificates (Gem 100 Jumbo, unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 100, SMQ $35,000.00 as 100). This is the only stamp to achieve this perfect grade in the P.S.E. Population Report. No other Mint N.H. examples grade above 98J (Image)

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS IS THE FINEST EXAMPLE OF THE UNWATERMARKED 1894 3-CENT BUREAU ISSUE RECORDED. A SPECTACULAR STAMP IN EVERY RESPECT, GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E.

As collectors of the First Bureau Issue know, great difficulty was experienced in perforating the stamps, either due to poor equipment or improper operation. Choppy, ragged perfs and poor centering are so common on this issue that it is often possible to separate the 1894 unwatermarked stamps from the 1895 watermarked stamps by the appearance of the perforations alone. This example, with precise centering, wide margins and perfectly formed perforations, is a true condition rarity.

Ex "Scarsdale". 1997 P.F. certificate no longer accompanies. With 2012 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98; SMQ $10,000.00). This is the highest grade awarded to a Scott 253 in any condition (Mint N.H., hinged or used). It has been equaled by no others (Image)

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 1894 5-CENT UNWATERMARKED BUREAU ISSUE IS THE ESSENCE OF PERFECTION. IT HAS BEEN GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E., WHICH IS THE HIGHEST GRADED AWARDED.

According to Brookman, certain abrasive components of the ink used for printing the 5c stamp caused rapid plate wear. The stamp offered here, with such a remarkably detailed impression, in pristine condition and with superb centering, is truly the finest we have ever offered.

Ex "Scarsdale". 2001 P.F. certificate no longer accompanies. With 2012 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98; SMQ $9,500.00). This is the highest grade awarded to a Scott 255 in any gum condition and it has been equaled by only one other Mint N.H. stamp (Image)
