VERY FINE AND CHOICE. THE 1860 24-CENT GRAY LILAC IS EXTREMELY RARE IN MINT NEVER-HINGED CONDITION. TO FIND A SOUND WELL-CENTERED EXAMPLE IS VASTLY MORE DIFFICULT.

Aside from five Mint N.H. stamps contained in the block of twelve offered in our Sevenoaks sale (Sale 831) and one single contained in another block of twelve offered in our 2010 Rarities sale, we have offered only three others in Mint N.H. condition since keeping computerized records.

With 2014 P.S.E. certificate (VF 80; unpriced in SMQ in Mint N.H. condition). Unpriced in Scott as Mint N.H. Scott Retail as hinged
