VERY FINE AND CHOICE. AN EXTREMELY RARE SOUND USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1861 3-CENT PIGEON BLOOD PINK, CANCELLED IN BLUE.

The Pigeon Blood Pink shade, named for the rare ruby, is regarded as the most distinctive and rarest of the Pink shades. Unfortunately, the special bluish-pink tint of the true Pigeon Blood Pink is sensitive to light and other environmental factors. Therefore, examples kept in the dark over many years retain the true Pigeon Blood color, while others have lost it. This example retains its vivid color.

With 2003 P.F. certificate

AN ATTRACTIVE COVER WITH THE 3-CENT 1861 ISSUE IN THE RARE PIGEON BLOOD PINK SHADE -- FINE CENTERING WITH COLOR AS RICH AND VIBRANT AS WE HAVE EVER SEEN.

The Pigeon Blood Pink shade, named for the rare ruby, is regarded as the most distinctive and rarest of the Pink shades. Unfortunately, the special bluish-pink tint of the true Pigeon Blood Pink is sensitive to light and other environmental factors. Therefore, examples kept in the dark over many years retain the true Pigeon Blood color, while others have lost it. In terms of color, the stamp on this cover is among the finest we have ever encountered. Stanley B. Ashbrook agreed and signed the cover on December 27, 1951, with the statement "The 3c 1861 on this cover is a gorgeous example of the Pigeon Blood. I doubt if a finer example could be found."

FINE APPEARANCE. THE 1861 3-CENT PIGEON BLOOD PINK IS EASILY ONE OF THE RAREST OF THE 1861 ISSUE STAMPS TO OBTAIN IN UNUSED CONDITION. WE HAVE OFFERED ONLY ONE OTHER SINCE 1993, AND THE PHILATELIC FOUNDATION HAS CERTIFIED FEWER THAN A SIX.

The 3c Pigeon Blood Pink is one of the rarest of all 1861-66 Issue shades in original-gum condition. We have offered only three since keeping computerized records, including the Whitman copy in 2009, one with a piece out in 1993, and the stamp offered here. The Philatelic Foundation has certified two others, both with faults and off center, bringing the total to four certified by the P.F. plus one uncertified offered by us in 1993. The P.F. has also previously certified one other as genuine, but it was withdrawn when resubmitted and so needs to be reexamined. The Miller collection (owned by The New York Public Library and now displayed at the Smithsonian National Postal Museum) contains another, but it is not available to collectors.

With 1958 and 2018 P.F. certificates. The Pigeon Blood Pink shade was first listed in Scott in 1957.
