VERY FINE. A FRESH AND CHOICE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1866 15-CENT LINCOLN.

The 1866 15c Lincoln, which is regarded by many as the first U.S. commemorative stamp -- issued exactly one year after Lincoln's death -- is an exceedingly difficult issue to find in sound condition with original gum and choice centering. The statistics bear this out as only one original-gum example has been graded higher than F-VF 75 by P.S.E. -- a single hinged stamp graded XF 90.

With 2014 P.S.E. certificate

Sale Number 1159, Lot Number 95, 1861-66 Issue (Scott 56-78)15c Black (77), 15c Black (77)15c Black (77). Original gum, lightly hinged, sharp proof-like impression, wide margins

EXTREMELY FINE. WITH A FEW EXCEPTIONS FOR RARE SHADES, THE 1866 15-CENT LINCOLN COULD WELL BE THE RAREST OF THE 1861-66 SERIES IN CHOICE ORIGINAL-GUM CONDITION.

Throughout years of Siegel sales, we have emphasized the rarity of 1861-66 stamps in choice original-gum condition. With the exception of the rare 5c and 24c shades, our experience shows that the 15c Black is the most difficult stamp to obtain in sound, choice original-gum condition. It is most often found without gum or disturbed gum, or the fully-gummed examples are off center. The block of six (straight edge at left), ex Caspary, Lilly and Ishikawa, is well-centered with original gum, but our search of numerous other major auction sales produced few other examples apart from the block. Therefore, this stamp could be the rarest face-different design of the 1861-66 series in choice original-gum condition.

With 1979, 1997 and 2004 P.F. certificates.

EXTREMELY FINE. A RARE CENTERED ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 15-CENT 1866 ISSUE. A DIFFICULT ISSUE TO FIND IN SUCH PRISTINE CONDITION.

Throughout years of Siegel sales, we have made frequent reference to the rarity of certain 1861-66 Issue stamps in choice original-gum condition. With the exception of the rare 5c and 24c shades, our experience shows that the 15c Lincoln is the most difficult stamp to obtain in sound, choice original-gum condition. It is most often found without gum or with disturbed gum. Examples with full original gum are frequently off-center. The block of six (straight edge at left), ex Caspary, Lilly and Ishikawa, is well-centered with original gum, but our search of numerous other major auction sales produced few other examples apart from the block. Therefore, this stamp could be the rarest face-different design of the 1861-66 series in choice original-gum condition.
