VERY FINE AND CHOICE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 6-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL RE-ISSUE.

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.

Ex Dr. Morris and Mayer. 1991 P.F. certificate no longer accompanies. With 2006 P.S.E. certificate (VF 80; SMQ $3,000.00). In our opinion, this deserves a VF-XF 85 grade, if not XF 90.
