EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THE PERFORATED 12-CENT STAMPS FROM PLATE 3 ARE EXCEEDINGLY DIFFICULT TO FIND IN HIGH-GRADE USED CONDITION. THIS SPECTACULAR STAMP WITH A RED CANCEL AND GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E. IS ONE OF THE MOST OUTSTANDING USED EXAMPLES WE HAVE ENCOUNTERED.

With 2015 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $2,000.00). There is only one graded higher (98) and ten others graded 95, but this is one of even fewer with a red cancel.
