EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL EXAMPLE OF THE $6.00 1875 CONTINENTAL NEWSPAPER ISSUE. THIS IS ONE OF THE SCARCEST NEWSPAPER STAMPS IN SOUND, CENTERED, ORIGINAL-GUM CONDITION.
Sound, original-gum and centered examples of high-denomination Newspaper stamps printed by the Continental Bank Note Co. are incredibly rare. A search of several collections containing superb offerings of Newspaper stamps, such as Lutwak, Cole, Lyons, Floyd and Lessin, has failed to find its equal. We have offered only one in comparable condition, in our 2004 sale of the "Vineyard" collection.
Ex Drucker. With 1983 and 2002 P.F. certificates
