VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1909 6-CENT ON BLUISH PAPER.
Our census of used 6c Bluish Paper stamps, available at our website at http://siegelauctions.com/dynamic/census/362/362.pdf , records ten examples, including eight singles and one pair. A few of the stamps have cancellations of questionable status, leaving perhaps four with indisputably genuine cancels, including this example with a duplex oval grid.

FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1909 6-CENT ON BLUISH PAPER. ONLY TEN ARE KNOWN USED, AND OF THESE PERHAPS THREE ARE SOUND. A GREAT RARITY.
Our census of Scott 362 used, illustrated below and available at our website at http://siegelauctions.com/dynamic/census/362/362.pdf , illustrates the ten used examples of Scott 361 certified as genuine. Three additional copies are certified with either non-contemporary cancels or decline opinion, leaving only ten undisputedly genuine copies. Of these ten only four are sound or potentially sound, and only two are well-centered. They are difficult to find in any condition -- only two used copies are contained in Power Search.

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 6-CENT ON BLUISH PAPER.
We record only thirteen used examples of Scott 362 in our unpublished census, including eleven singles and one pair (plus one stamp with a non-contemporary cancel). Of these, only three have margins and centering that compare to or exceed this example. Seven of the thirteen have flaws to some degree, though a few have older certificates so current condition is uncertain. This stamp represents a rare opportunity to acquire a genuinely used example with Very Fine centering.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS STAMP HAS THE BEST CENTERING AND MARGINS OF THE TEN USED COPIES OF THE 6-CENT ON BLUISH THAT HAVE BEEN CERTIFIED BY THE PHILATELIC FOUNDATION. A WONDERFUL RARITY.
Of the ten copies certified as genuine by the Philatelic Foundation, two have s.e. at top (the only known used pair), one shows slight thinning at right, two are partly reperforated and one has a tiny tear. Only four copies are sound and have perforations on all sides. One of these is also cancelled by the oval.
