Sale 956, Lot 107, 1875 Re-Issue of 1861-66 Issue30c Brownish Orange, Re-Issue (110). Original gum, deep rich color on bright paper, well-balanced margins for this difficult issue

VERY FINE AND CHOICE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 30-CENT 1861 RE-ISSUE. THIS IS EASILY ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT DENOMINATIONS TO OBTAIN IN SOUND AND CENTERED ORIGINAL-GUM CONDITION.

Little space was left on the 30c 1861 plate for vertical rows of perforations between stamps, and the same plate was used for the 1875 Re-Issue. Therefore, well-centered copies with perforations clear at the sides are rare. Only 346 were sold. Our Levi records contain 146 unused singles, an unused pair and an unused block of four. Many have margins either touching or in on at least one side. Few of the sound copies retain all or part of their original gum.

With 1994 and 2008 P.F. certificates
