EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A STUNNING ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 30-CENT 1861 RE-ISSUE. THIS IS THE MOST DIFFICULT DENOMINATION TO OBTAIN IN SUCH CHOICE 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.

Ex Whitman. With 1983, 1997 and 2009 P.F. certificates
