122 O image#36, 12c Black, plate I, a breathtakingly beautiful used example of a stamp that is almost impossible to find in true gem quality, as the narrow spacing between the stamps on the plate did not allow for perforations which were added later, this stamp is the "one-in-a-million" exception to the rule when it comes to centering, as it possesses absolutely perfect centering and its perforations clear the design on all four sides, intensely rich color and an incredibly detailed impression, beautifully postmarked with a blue target cancel confined to the bottom left corner, superb; given the spectacular overall gem qualities that this stamp boasts, we cannot imagine that a finer example exists; 1988 PF certificate.

127 O image#38, 30c Orange, a fabulous used example that is, without question, the finest used Thirty Cent Orange 1857 Issue in existence, and may well be the most important condition rarity known from all the values from this series, as each and every aspect of this stamp is truly breathtaking, possessing absolutely perfect centering amid the most immense margins imaginable (both at sides and top and bottom), plus this stamp boasts an overall freshness and crispness which belies its age, as its color is spectacularly rich and radiant, totally unaffected by oxidization as so often found on this value, its impression is unusually strong as well on immaculate paper, a perfectly struck large Boston "Paid" in grid postmark further contributes to this stamp's overall eye appeal, simply superb; this incomparable gem realized a record price ($6,750.00, plus the 10% buyer's premium) in its last appearance in auction in 1999, and we fully expect that it will again attract a similarly lofty realization in the Hinrichs auction; 1992 PF certificate.
