VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A RARE SOUND UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE 1861 24-CENT VIOLET. ONE OF THE RAREST OF THE 24-CENT 1861-63 ISSUE SHADES IN SOUND, UNUSED CONDITION.

The 24c 1861 exists in four basic shades of Violet: Dark Violet (August 1861 trial printing, formerly Scott 60); Violet on Thin Paper (August-September 1861 regular issue, Scott 70c -- the shade offered here); Pale Gray Violet (1861 regular issue, Scott 70d) and Blackish Violet (ca. 1863 printing, Scott 78c). All four are rare, especially in sound condition. We feel this shade is nearly as rare as the Blackish Violet, which has a catalogue value of $30,000.00 without gum.

With 1988 and 1991 P.F. certificates as Dark Violet, Scott 60. The P.F.'s understanding of these shades has evolved over the years and this example, which is a lighter shade of Violet than the Scott 60 Dark Violet shade, would receive a certificate as No. 70c today.
