EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 1902 SERIES SPECIAL DELIVERY STAMP, SCOTT E6, WHICH HAS BEEN GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E.

Scott E6 is the first of the "Messenger on Bicycle" Special Delivery designs. It was released as part of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing's "Series of 1902" regular postage issues (Scott 300-313). Scott E6 is printed on double-line "USPS" watermarked paper with 12-gauge perforations. In 1908 the "Helmut of Mercury" Special Delivery stamp was issued. However, the Messenger on Bicycle design was re-issued in 1909 from new plates, and the same basic design was issued continuously until the Motorcycle Delivery design replaced it in 1922. Changes in the paper and perforation gauge for the issues from 1909 until 1922 mirror the changes in the Washington-Franklin series of the same period.

With 2007 and 2017 P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98; SMQ $7,400.00). This is one of only three E6's to grade in the 98 or higher range. There are two others in this range, graded 98J and 100. We have offered both of these stamps, most recently in Sales 1150 (98J) and 1138 (100)

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. AN EXCEPTIONAL MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 1902 SERIES SPECIAL DELIVERY STAMP, SCOTT E6, WHICH HAS BEEN GRADED SUPERB 98 JUMBO BY P.S.E.

Scott E6 is the first of the "Messenger on Bicycle" Special Delivery designs. It was released as part of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing's "Series of 1902" regular postage issues (Scott 300-313). Scott E6 is printed on double-line "USPS" watermarked paper with 12-gauge perforations. In 1908 the "Helmut of Mercury" Special Delivery stamp was issued. However, the Messenger on Bicycle design was re-issued in 1909 from new plates, and the same basic design was issued continuously until the Motorcycle Delivery design replaced it in 1922. Changes in the paper and perforation gauge for the issues from 1909 until 1922 mirror the changes in the Washington-Franklin series of the same period.

Scott E6 is not particularly scarce (it has a Scott value of $525.00 as Mint N.H.), but experienced collectors and professionals know that very few examples of the 1902 Issue exist with Jumbo, balanced margins. The P.S.E. Population Report statistics support this statement.

With 2017 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98 Jumbo; SMQ $7,400.00 as 98, $17,800.00 as 100). This is the only example to achieve a Superb 98 Jumbo grade, and only one stamp has been graded higher (Gem 100, last offered in our 2016 sale of the "Hanover" collection)

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS MAGNIFICENT MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 1902 SERIES SPECIAL DELIVERY STAMP, SCOTT E6, HAS BEEN AWARDED THE PERFECT GRADE OF GEM 100 BY P.S.E. -- THIS STANDS ALONE AS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

Scott E6 is the first of the "Messenger on Bicycle" Special Delivery designs. It was released as part of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing's "Series of 1902" regular postage issues (Scott 300-313). Scott E6 is printed on double-line "USPS" watermarked paper with 12-gauge perforations. In 1908 the "Helmut of Mercury" Special Delivery stamp was issued.

Scott E6 is not particularly scarce (it has a Scott value of $525.00 as Mint N.H.), but experienced collectors and professionals know that very few examples of the 1902 Issue exist with wide and balanced margins. The P.S.E. Population Report statistics support this statement, and a review of our auction records with Power Search provides visual confirmation. None of the stamps (singles or in blocks) in our database compare to this Mint N.H. Gem 100 example.

With 2009 P.S.E. certificate (Gem 100; SMQ $17,800.00). This is the highest grade awarded and the only example to achieve this desirable grade. One has been graded Superb 98, and four have graded 95, a statistic that has not changed in the past four years.
