Sale Number 1199, Lot Number 1122, 1861-66 Issue (Scott 67-78)12c Black (69), 12c Black (69)12c Black (69). Choice centering with astounding Jumbo margins all around, crisp impression, cancelled by target and circular datestamp

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB JUMBO USED EXAMPLE OF THE 12-CENT 1861 ISSUE, GRADED SUPERB 98 JUMBO BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

Although the 12c 1861 plate provided ample space between the subjects, the 12-gauge perforation holes use up much of that space, and the lines of perforations were rarely applied in a way that created four balanced margins around the design. This stamp is a one-in-a-million example of perforating outside the normal boundary line on all four sides.

Ex Senchuk and Merlin. With 1980 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98 Jumbo; SMQ $4,500.00). This is the highest grade awarded and only three others share it.

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A COLORFUL AND RARE PATRIOTIC DESIGN WITH AN ODD FELLOWS THEME, USED TO VIENNA, AUSTRIA. FROM THE FAMOUS ANGELL CORRESPONDENCE.

The Odd Fellows was a secret fraternity, separate from the Masons. The three links in the symbol stand for its motto of "Friendship, Love and Truth". In 1851 it became the first fraternal organization to accept women (the Daughters of Rebekah). This effort was spearheaded by Schuyler Colfax, who would later serve as Grant's Vice President.

Dr. Henry C. Angell was an optometrist who spent a considerable amount of time in Europe. Covers are known sent to him in France, Italy, England, Germany and Austria, plus a very few forwarded to other destinations. He was an art collector and undoubtedly appreciated the wide variety of Civil War patriotic envelopes mailed to him while he travelled abroad.

Ex Worden and Faiman. With 2002 P.F. certificate
