VERY FINE AND EXTREMELY ELUSIVE EXAMPLE OF THE USED 15-CENT BLUISH PAPER -- RARELY OFFERED AT PUBLIC AUCTION AND GROSSLY UNDERCATALOGUED IN SCOTT.

Our research shows only seven used singles have been certified by the Philatelic Foundation. Unlike the 13c Bluish Paper, the 15c saw very little use, and surviving examples are extremely rare. The Scott Catalogue value is probably based on an old and obsolete realization.

With 1999 P.F. certificate.
