VERY FINE AND CHOICE ORIGINAL-GUM PAIR OF THE 5-CENT NEW YORK POSTMASTER'S PROVISIONAL ISSUE WITH "ACM" INITIALS CONNECTED. ORIGINAL-GUM SINGLES AND MULTIPLES OF THE NEW YORK PROVISIONAL ARE EXTREMELY RARE.
We are aware of perhaps a half-dozen or so original-gum pairs. Of these, most have faults, including one with margin significantly in at bottom, and a horizontal strip of four with a heavy crease.
With 1994 and 2006 P.F. certificates. Scott pricing note states: "Nos. 9X1-9X3 and varieties unused are valued without gum. Examples with original gum are extremely scarce and will command higher prices."
EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A MAGNIFICENT UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT NEW YORK POSTMASTER'S PROVISIONAL STAMP WITHOUT SIGNATURE.
Scott Retail for unused is without gum (see footnote)
EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A BEAUTIFUL AND RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT ST. LOUIS POSTMASTER'S PROVISIONAL CANCELLED SOLELY BY THE RED CIRCULAR DATESTAMP.
With 1993 P.F. certificate. Scott Retail $7,000.00 for normally pen-cancelled stamp off cover -- Scott pricing note states: "Values for used off-cover stamps are for pen-cancelled copies. Handstamp cancelled copies sell for much more."
