FINE EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 30-CENT 1861 FIRST COLOR.
Our census of the 30c 1861 First Color, available at http://siegelauctions.com/dynamic/census/61/61.pdf , contains a total of 33 examples, including one in the Miller collection at The New York Public Library. A characteristic common to most examples of the 30c 1861 First Color is creasing, which in some cases is very severe and in others barely visible. This fresh example lacks the typical creasing. All of the sound stamps are centered to one side (as are most of the others).
Census No. 61-UNC-04. With 1992 and 2006 P.F. certificates. Scott Retail for original gum in the grade of "Fine"
