The Richard Drews Collection of United States 1861-68 Issues
 
Sale Number 1195, Lot Number 162, 1861-66 Issue Stamps, cont.3c Scarlet (74), 3c Scarlet (74)3c Scarlet (74). Bold strike of "D" oval grid duplex cancel of New York City, brilliant color, single pulled perf and small corner crease at top right

FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 3-CENT SCARLET WITH THE NEW YORK CITY OVAL DUPLEX CANCELLATION. ONLY A VERY SMALL NUMBER OF THIS ISSUE WERE ACTUALLY SENT THROUGH THE MAILS.

As documented by Jerome S. Wagshal in a series of Chronicle articles (Nos. 56, 60, 61 and 62), Carl F. Rothfuchs, a Washington D.C. stamp dealer, obtained a supply of the 3c Scarlet in 1893 -- probably from the Post Office Department in exchange for his assistance with the Columbian Exposition -- and sold them with pen marks and original gum. A small number were also used by J. W. Scott, who posted letters with some of his supply to validate his claim that these stamps were legitimate postage. Today, there are perhaps five copies cancelled in this manner. We offered one in 2001 (Twigg-Smith collection), another in our sale of the Wagshal collection and one in our auction of the Curtis collection.

Ex Natalee Grace and "Golden Oak". With 1994 P.F. certificate.

FRESH AND FINE EXAMPLE OF THE VERY SCARCE 3-CENT SCARLET TRIAL PRINTING.

As has been documented by Jerome S. Wagshal in a series of Chronicle articles (Nos. 56, 60, 61 and 62), Carl F. Rothfuchs, a Washington D.C. stamp dealer, obtained a supply of the 3c Scarlet in 1893 -- probably from the Post Office Department in exchange for his assistance with the Columbian Exposition -- and sold them with pen marks and original gum. The Rothfuchs lot is not from the same supply acquired by John W. Scott in the late 1870's, from which stamps exist uncancelled and cancelled with a New York City Station D oval.
