The Barry K. Schwartz Collection of U.S. 1909 Bluish Paper Issue

FINE. THE 3-CENT ON BLUISH PAPER IS THE RAREST OF THE REGULARLY-ISSUED BLUISH PAPERS IN USED CONDITION. ONLY FOUR USED EXAMPLES ARE RECORDED.

A total of ten sheets of 400 (4,000 stamps) were printed, then divided into 40 panes of 100. A quantity was inadvertently distributed to various post offices, including the post office in New York.

Our census of Scott 359 in used condition, available at our website at http://siegelauctions.com/dynamic/census/359/359.pdf , records three copies plus one on cover. A fifth example off cover example needs to be reexamined for authenticity. This makes it as rare, or rarer, than the 5c Bluish Paper in used condition, which catalogues twice as much.

Census No. 359-CAN-01. Ex “Natalee Grace.” With 1992 and 2011 P.S.E. certificates. For the record, the P.F. issued a certificate stating “counterfeit cancel and reperforated at bottom” (473528).
