The Grant Inman Collection, Part 3: First -Third Issue Revenues
ng
Sale Number 1137, Lot Number 1303, Second Issue Inverts (Scott R103a-R127a, Second Issue Balance)5c Blue & Black, Second Issue, Center Inverted (R107a), 5c Blue & Black, Second Issue, Center Inverted (R107a)5c Blue & Black, Second Issue, Center Inverted (R107a). Unused (no gum), gorgeous rich colors and detailed impressions, perfectly centered with wide and balanced margins

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS MAY WELL BE THE ONLY UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THIS ISSUE IN EXISTENCE. IT IS WITHOUT QUESTION THE FINEST EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT SECOND REVENUE ISSUE WITH INVERTED CENTER. A PHENOMENAL STAMP IN EVERY RESPECT, THIS RANKS AMONG THE FINEST IN TERMS OF CONDITION OF ANY INVERT.

A Power Search review and a search of older auction catalogs reveals just how rare this invert is in sound condition. Most are off-center or have faults. The stamp offered here, in unused condition and with perfect centering, is truly remarkable.

Ex Zoellner. With 2000 P.F. certificate. Unpriced in Scott as unused. Scott Retail for used

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. AN OUTSTANDING SOUND EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT SECOND ISSUE WITH INVERTED CENTER.
