VERY FINE AND CHOICE EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 15-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL RE-ISSUE IMPERFORATE HORIZONTALLY.

In United States Postage Stamps of 1869, author Jonathan Rose states that only one sheet of 100 was issued. A much smaller group are still known to exist. Given the considerably smaller number of horizontally imperforate copies, the relationship between catalogue value of the normal stamp and Scott 129a seems disproportionate to its scarcity.
