Sale Number 1224, Lot Number 118, 1869 Pictorial Issue12c Green (117), 12c Green (117)12c Green (117). Mathematically perfect centering with Jumbo margins, deep rich color and detailed impression, corner cancel leaves the beautiful James Smillie engraving of the S.S. Adriatic unobscured

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS SUPERB 12-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL IS THE SOLE STAMP OF THE ENTIRE SERIES TO ACHIEVE THE ULTIMATE GRADE OF GEM 100 JUMBO FROM P.S.E. A PHENOMENAL STAMP.

The iconic S.S. Adriatic engraving by James Smillie, which is depicted on the 12c 1869 Pictorial Issue, served as a symbol of improved postal communications -- a theme continued from the 1869 2c (post rider) and 3c (train) denominations. The vignette was also used on a few broken bank notes of the period, stock certificates, Peru Postage Due stamps and famously on the Citizen's Bank of Louisiana $10.00 "Dix" note.

With 2019 P.S.E. certificate (Gem 100 Jumbo; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 98). This is the sole 1869 Pictorial stamp of any denomination to achieve this highest of grades in any condition category (used or unused). There are not even any Gem 100s in the P.S.E. Population Report for any stamps from Scott 112-122.
