Sale Number 1062, Lot Number 238, 1861-66 Issue, cont. (Scott 71-78c)90c Dark Blue (72b), 90c Dark Blue (72b)90c Dark Blue (72b). Deep shade and proof-like impression, two neat strikes of circular datestamp, unusually choice centering with Jumbo margins

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. AN ABSOLUTELY STUNNING USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1861 90-CENT IN THE DESIRABLE DARK BLUE SUB-SHADE, WHICH HAS BEEN GRADED SUPERB 95 JUMBO BY P.S.E..

The Dark Blue shade of the 90c is the only shade which trends towards the deeper end of the color spectrum, while the other shades--Blue, Dull Blue and Pale Blue--all trend towards the brighter end of the spectrum. In our opinion this is the most difficult shade to obtain in such choice condition. We have offered only eight unused and used examples since the mid-1990's, and most of those were faulty. The Philatelic Foundation has certified less than a dozen unused or used in the past decade, and most have either heavy cancels or flaws. The example offered here, with unusually choice centering, rich color, and in sound condition, is possibly the finest used copy in existence.

With 2002 P.F. and 2007 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95 Jumbo; SMQ $6,500.00 as 95, unpriced as 98). This is the highest grade awarded and the only example to achieve it. As an indication of what this may catalogue as 98, the normal shade catalogues $14,000.00 in that grade and $4,000.00 as a 95, so if applying the same multiplier this should catalogue $22,750.00 as a 98.
