EXTREMELY FINE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 15-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL RE-ISSUE. ONE OF THE FINEST WE HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED.
The Type III design of the 15c Re-Issue is similar to the Type I, except it lacks shading lines around the vignette. The Rose book (p. 104) notes that essays of Type III are known from 1868, indicating this type was contemplated but never used for the original 1869 Issue.
With 1997 P.F. and 2005 P.S.E. certificates (XF 90; SMQ $2,450.00). Only one grades higher (at 95J)
