VERY FINE. A RARE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 30-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL ISSUE INVERT WITH WONDERFULLY RICH COLORS. OFFERED TO THE MARKET FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 1941.

Our census of 30c 1869 Inverts, available at https://siegelauctions.com/census/us/scott/121b , contains a total of 47 stamps, including 7 unused and 40 used (one in the Miller Collection at The New York Public Library and one used in the Tapling Collection at the British Library). Perhaps ten used examples are confirmed as sound. Several have significant faults. The example offered here, with just a single slightly short perf, is essentially sound.

Census No. 121b-CAN-03. Offered to the market for the first time since the 1941 Harmer, Rooke auction of the C. A. Brown collection, where acquired by the family of the current consignor. With 2018 P.F. certificate
