62 og 71 image#71, 30c Orange, a superlative mint example of one of the 19th century's most difficult stamps, possessing several exceptional eye-arresting physical qualities, including being incredibly well centered, especially when compared to most examples which typically have their perforations cutting the design on at least one side, this particular copy boasts margins so wide that virtually no portion of the design is impinged by the perforations, plus this stamp is the beneficiary of a marvelous overall brilliance, with gorgeous sumptuously rich color and a crisp impression on bright paper, full clean o.g. that has been lightly hinged, extremely fine; an exciting condition rarity; the Scott catalog notes that "Values for No. 71 are for copies with small margins, especially at sides.

72 ng 84 image#84, 2c Black, "D" grill, a rarely offered unused example of this terribly difficult grilled stamp, possessing better centering than most, as this stamp is typically found terribly off center, strong rich color, clear grill impression, horizontal crease at top, otherwise quite fine for this; 2000 PSE certificate.

75 og 85B image#85B, 2c Black, "Z" grill, the mint example offered here of this very rare and terribly challenging stamp, in our opinion, is one of the finest to appear at auction in several years, with this being one of the very few known original gum examples whose perforations do not cut the design, which occurs on virtually every other existing copy, additionally this remarkable stamp possesses an extraordinary overall freshness, "jet" black color and a prooflike impression on crisp paper, full clean o.g., lightly hinged, very fine and quite choice; a stamp whose equal will be difficult to find; 1996 PF certificate.

SOLD for $8,500.00

76 og 85C image#85C, 3c Rose, "Z" grill, an enormously rare mint example of this distinctive "Z" grill, fairly well centered, strong rich color, full o.g., small thin spot and a horizontal crease at bottom, very fine appearance for this; very few original gum #85C's have been certified by the Philatelic Foundation (probably no more than 20), and the majority of them have faults of a major nature or are terribly off center, obviously making this stamp one of the most elusive of all 19th century issues to find in mint condition; 1986 PF certificate. (Image) 13,500.00

SOLD for $3,500.00
Closing..Dec-12, 03:00 PM
