EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SENSATIONAL UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE 3-CENT LARGE QUEEN ON LAID PAPER. WITHOUT QUESTION, THIS IS THE FINEST OF THE LESS THAN 10 UNUSED EXAMPLES IN EXISTENCE.
Unitrade notes "Fewer than 10 unused copies" are known. We are aware of only two original gum examples. Of the remaining examples without gum, nearly all have faults to some degree and/or are off-centered. We are unaware of any other sound example in Extremely Fine condition. We rank this as the finest unused Large Queen on Laid Paper, regardless of denomination.
