EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 1851 3-CENT DULL RED, WHICH HAS BEEN GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E.
Although the 3c 1851 is by no means a rare stamp, there are very few examples in Mint Never-Hinged condition. The last four-margined example we offered was in 2004.
With 2011 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98; unpriced in SMQ as Mint N.H., SMQ $2,550.00 as hinged). One other shares this grade, which is the highest awarded to date.
