Bright color and crisp impressions, very lightly cancelled leaving entire design clearly visible, unusually choice centering with wide and balanced margins

EXTREMELY FINE GEM USED EXAMPLE OF THE 90-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL ISSUE.

These high-denomination stamps were typically used on mail to foreign countries or on heavy registered letters. They were often heavily cancelled by postal clerks to make sure they were not reused. The example offered here, with a very light cancel, is a rare exception to the rule.

Ex Dr. Graves ("Argentum"), "Natalee Grace" and Morton. 2013 P.S.E. certificate no longer accompanies (XF 90; SMQ $4,500.00). With 1983, 2009 and 2020 P.F. certificates (XF-Superb 95). In the Morton sale catalogue we stated we were surprised this was not graded higher than 90 by P.S.E. The new XF-Superb 95 P.F. certificate confirms our view on the centering and freshness of this stamp

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A PHENOMENAL USED EXAMPLE OF THE 90-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL ISSUE, GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E.

The 90c 1869 Pictorial is widely admired for its beautiful engraving and dignified portrait of Abraham Lincoln. However, collectors have been frustrated in their efforts to acquire choice examples of this issue. Used 90c stamps are typically heavily cancelled, because the high denomination was cause for postal clerks to thoroughly obliterate any chance for re-use.

With 2018 P.F. certificate (XF-Superb 95)
