EXTREMELY FINE. A RARE SUPERB AND SOUND USED EXAMPLE OF THE 12-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL RE-ISSUE.

The 12c is the second rarest value of the 1869 Re-issue set in used condition. The Rose book estimates 15-25 extant used copies and SMQ estimates 20 extant. In our opinion, this stamp ranks among the three or four finest.

Ex Drucker. With 1985 and 2002 P.F. certificates
