HISTORY AND COMMENTARY

Original-gum and unused blocks of the 30¢ 1861-68 Issue are extremely rare. We record two unused plate number strips of four: the strip offered here and another that emerged in 2012 with the sale of the Frelinghuysen collection (Siegel Sale 1021, lot 220). There is also a plate block of eight with "Specimen" oveprint. This strip was reduced from eight to four stamps.

Sale Number 1199, Lot Number 1131, 1861-66 Issue (Scott 67-78)30c Orange (71), 30c Orange (71)30c Orange (71). Rich color and detailed impression, Jumbo margins, bold strike of target cancel

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1861 30-CENT ORANGE. THIS BEAUTIFUL STAMP IS GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 JUMBO BY P.S.E.

The 30c is known used very early after the series was issued; the earliest documented use is August 20, 1861. The narrowly-spaced 30c 1861 plate left very little room for the 12-gauge perforations between stamps. Brookman notes "coupled with the fact it is very hard to find a well-centered copy, this color, which always cancels badly, makes a truly superb used copy almost a rarity. I consider it the most difficult stamp of the 1861 Series to obtain in choice used condition". Scott Catalogue also acknowledges the difficulty of obtaining this issue in better condition, stating "Values for No. 71 are for examples with small margins, especially at sides. Large-margined examples sell for much more".

Ex Merlin. With 2008 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95 Jumbo; SMQ $3,600.00). Only three have graded higher (two at 98, one at 98J) and none share this lofty grade.
