Without gum as issued, rich color on bright paper, completely intact perforations all around which are long and full

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. THIS IS THE FINEST EXAMPLE OF THE 1875 3-CENT CONTINENTAL BANK NOTE COMPANY SPECIAL PRINTING CONTAINED IN OUR RECORDS. A PHENOMENAL STAMP IN TERMS OF PERFORATIONS, MARGIN SIZE, COLOR AND OVERALL FRESHNESS.

Our recently updated records for Scott 169 contain 35 examples that have been certified as genuine by the Philatelic Foundation (including one on cover). Of these, only four have perforations all around and are confirmed as sound. Of these four, one has perforations touching on one side, one has a part imprint (ex Whitman) and one shows the plate number but perfs just touch at right. There are no other potentially sound and centered examples of this issue; this leaves just this stamp and the ex-Whitman copy as the only two with perforations all around in sound condition where the perfs do not touch the design.

Unpublished Census No. 169-UNC-02. Ex Caspary, Hetherington, Klein and Zoellner. With 1957 and 1998 P.F. certificates.
