The 6c is the one of the rarest of the set in used condition. SMQ estimates that approximately 30 exist in used condition, and our own informal count concurs. The example offered here is one of the finest in existence -- most are either off-center or have flaws.
With 2000 P.F. and 2005 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $17,500.00). This is the highest grade awarded and no other examples have achieved this grade
