Two of the used copies are in institutions -- the Tapling Collection at The British Library and the Miller Collection at The New York Public Library. Fewer than 20 used copies are sound, including the stamp offered here. Over half have serious faults or repairs. In fact, the 15c is at least as difficult to find in sound condition as the more expensive 24c and 30c inverts.

Census No. 119b-CAN-82. Ex Choban. With 1995 P.F. and 2019 P.S.E. certificates (F 70; SMQ $90,000.00).

II, Center Inverted (119b). Extraordinarily bright and rich colors, sharp vignette impression with light cork cancel presents the error with remarkable clarity, trivial small thin spot and small corner crease at bottom left

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. ONE OF THE MOST ATTRACTIVE USED EXAMPLES OF THE 15-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL ISSUE IN EXISTENCE.

Our recently-updated census of Scott 119b, available at our website at http://www.siegelauctions.com/dynamic/census/119b/119b.pdf , records three unused and 97 used copies of Scott 119b (there are an additional three used examples of Scott 119c). Two of the used copies are in institutions -- the Tapling Collection at the British Library and the Miller Collection at The New York Public Library.

The appearance of 15c 1869 Inverts is very frequently unsatisfactory, due to cancellations that obscure the vignette. This stamp is visually one of the best we have encountered, and the small thin and corner crease are truly insignificant, especially in comparison with severe flaws that affect the majority of other copies.
