EXTREMELY FINE. A GORGEOUS EXAMPLE OF THE 24-CENT 1869 ISSUE WITH A "PAINT RED" CANCEL.

Most classic issues carry a premium for red cancels (the 1847 Issue excepted). However, the premium for a red cancel on this issue -- at nearly double the price of the stamp with a black cancel -- indicates its high desirability on the bicolor 1869 Pictorial Issue. With 2015 P.F. certificate (XF 90).

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A BEAUTIFUL USED EXAMPLE OF THE 24-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL ISSUE, GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 24-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL ISSUE CANCELED IN RED. A DIFFICULT ISSUE TO OBTAIN IN SUCH OUTSTANDING CONDITION.

With 1999 P.F. and 2016 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $4,250.00 for normal cancel). Only seven examples grade higher (highest is 98J). We have offered about half the stamps graded 95 or higher and only one other that we have encountered bears a red cancel
