Sale Number 1209, Lot Number 1100, 1851-56 Issue (Scott 5-17)12c Black (17), 12c Black (17)12c Black (17). Horizontal pair, original gum, barest faint trace of hinging (if at all), incredibly huge margins all around including sheet margin at right and significant parts of four adjacent stamps, proof-like impression in a beautiful grayish black shade on bright fresh paper

EXTREMELY FINE GEM PAIR. A SUPERB ORIGINAL-GUM HORIZONTAL PAIR OF THE 12-CENT 1851 ISSUE WITH COLOSSAL MARGINS AND EXTRAORDINARY FRESHNESS.

As this pair amply demonstrates, the spacing between stamps on the plate is very narrow. Most examples (unused and used) have either narrow margins or are cutting into the framelines. This pair, with full original gum and with such large margins, is a remarkable rarity.

2000 P.F. certificate no longer accompanies. With 2012 P.S.E. certificate (OGph, Superb 98 Jumbo; unpriced in SMQ as a pair, SMQ $65,000.00 as a single). Scott Retail for a pair is $17,500.00
