Sale Number 1000, Lot Number 1309, Postal Stationery6c Red on Buff Star Die entire, Die 10 (U31; UPSS 63), 6c Red on Buff Star Die entire, Die 10 (U31; UPSS 63)6c Red on Buff Star Die entire, Die 10 (U31; UPSS 63). Size 21, knife 94, watermark 1, cancelled by grid in circle, "Oxford N.Y. Sep. 14" circular datestamp and used to Northampton Ill., slightly reduced at left, tiny tear at top, trivial wrinkling

VERY FINE APPEARING EXAMPLE OF THE 6-CENT RED ON BUFF STAR DIE ENTIRE, SCOTT U31. THIS ENTIRE IS CONSIDERABLY RARER IN USED CONDITION THAN ITS UNUSED COUNTERPART (WHICH IS ALSO RARE).

Porter Venn notes that perhaps ten unused entires exist. Scott Catalogue currently values used entires at only slightly more than twice the price of the unused, which we do not think adequately reflects its rarity.
