Sale Number 1138, Lot Number 1754, Postage Due (Scott J1-J78a)50c Deep Claret (J37), 50c Deep Claret (J37)50c Deep Claret (J37). Mint N.H., rich color, fantastic wide margins all around with perfect centering, every perf tooth is fully formed

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. IN OUR OPINION, AND SUBSTANTIATED BY OUR EXTENSIVE AUCTION RECORDS, THIS IS THE FINEST MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 50-CENT 1894 UNWATERMARKED BUREAU POSTAGE DUE ISSUE. NOT ONLY ONE OF THE MOST OUTSTANDING POSTAGE DUE STAMPS IN EXISTENCE, BUT ONE OF THE GREATEST OF ALL BUREAU ISSUES.

The 50c 1894 Unwatermarked Bureau Postage Due Issue is notorious for its typically poor centering. Only a tiny fraction of the total population exists with centering that could be compared with this example, and it is unlikely that any other has the margin width of this stamp or Mint N.H. gum. For the record, we have offered five Mint N.H. singles, none with margins and centering equal to the stamp offered here. The online records of The Philatelic Foundation contain only one additional example, with perfs almost touching at bottom.

With 2005 P.F. certificate (Superb 98)

Sale Number 1094, Lot Number 78, Postage Due: 1894-1912 Issues (Scott J29-J50)50c Deep Claret (J37), 50c Deep Claret (J37)50c Deep Claret (J37). Original gum, lightly hinged, exceptionally well-centered for this usually tight-margined Postage Due issue, incredible depth of color and detailed impression

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A BEAUTIFUL EXAMPLE OF THE 50-CENT 1895 DEEP CLARET POSTAGE DUE. THIS UNWATERMARKED BUREAU ISSUE IS ONE OF THE RAREST OF THE POSTAGE DUES IN ANY CHOICE GRADE.

With 2008 P.S.E. certificate (OGph, VF-XF 85; SMQ $2,000.00). The P.S.E. Population Report demonstrates how difficult it is to find this stamp in higher grades. Despite its high catalogue value, only eight OG and three Mint N.H. examples have been submitted for grading, which tells us that not many are worthy of grading. Of this small population, the highest grade is a single example at 90, then three at 85, one of which is offered here.
