Top sheet margin vertical pair, unused (no gum), large margin at bottom, choice centering, rich color

EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL PAIR OF THE 3-CENT 1861 ISSUE IMPERFORATE HORIZONTALLY. ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE WITH SUCH A WIDE TOP SHEET MARGIN.

We have been able to assemble most of the top row of the Imperforate Horizontally sheet from examples in our records. It appears likely that these were first separated along the perforations into vertical strips and then were then cut apart along the imperforate side. The number of 3c Imperforate Horizontally originally found is not known, but they are very rare in any form. Most examples we have seen are without gum. The last example we offered was in 2014, and prior to that one has to go back to our 2009 Whitman sale to find another.

Scott Retail as no gum pair is based on our 2014 auction realization

Single, radiant color, huge margins including parts of adjoining stamps at top and bottom, roughly separated due to the lack of perforations, neat grid cancel

VERY FINE. THIS IS THE ONLY RECORDED USED EXAMPLE OF THE 3-CENT ROSE IMPERFORATE HORIZONTALLY.

The size of the margins and the method of separation, with parts of the adjoining stamps at top and bottom, are conclusive evidence that this stamp never had horizontal perforations.

Ex Herzog. With 2018 P.F. certificate. Unlisted in Scott as used
