Sale Number 1195, Lot Number 126, 1861-66 Issue Stamps3c Rose, Double Impression (65f), 3c Rose, Double Impression (65f)3c Rose, Double Impression (65f). Clear double impression particularly visible on the top half of the stamp, fresh and bright color, two light strikes of target cancel leaves the double impression clearly visible

FINE AND RARE. ONE OF ONLY EIGHT EXAMPLES OF THE 3-CENT 1861 ISSUE DOUBLE IMPRESSION KNOWN TO US, OF WHICH ONLY TWO ARE SOUND. ONLY FIVE HAVE BEEN CERTIFIED AS GENUINE BY THE PHILATELIC FOUNDATION. A GREAT RARITY OF THE ISSUE.

Most double impressions occur when the first impression is made and found to be inadequate. The paper is then put in the press a second time, where it receives the heavier impression. It is a common misconception that the weaker impression is the second one.

Our census of Scott 65f, available at our website at https://siegelauctions.com/census/us/scott/65f , records only eight copies (including one in the Benjamin K. Miller Collection at the New York Public Library). None are known unused. Six have been certified as genuine by the Philatelic Foundation, including one repaired with portions of design added. Another was stolen from a Fedex package several years ago and is still missing. This leaves only five certified and one uncertified available to collectors. The example offered here, with superior centering and showing clear doubling of the design, is one of the finest contained in our records -- only one other is sound, offered in our 2012 Natalee Grace sale.

Census No. 65f-CAN-05. With 2001 P.F. certificate. This is the first we have offered since our 2012 Natalee Grace sale.
