EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 2-CENT BLACK JACK RE-ISSUE, WHICH HAS BEEN GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED TO DATE.
With 2007 P.S.E. certificate (OGph, XF-Superb 95; SMQ $12,000.00). This is the highest grade awarded to date and only five others share this grade. Only 979 issued.
VERY FINE AND CHOICE. AN EXTREMELY RARE SOUND AND CENTERED USED EXAMPLE OF THE 2-CENT BLACK JACK RE-ISSUE. ONLY 24 USED EXAMPLES ARE CONTAINED IN OUR CENSUS AND THE EXAMPLE OFFERED HERE IS UNQUESTIONABLY ONE OF THE FINEST.
Our unpublished census of Scott 103 used contains 24 copies. Of these, approximately 13 are sound. However, of these only five or six have centering we would consider Very Fine, and several have not been examined in decades and may in fact not be sound. Therefore, the example offered here is one of the finest in existence.
With 2011 P.S.E. certificate (VF 80; SMQ $24,000.00)
EXTREMELY FINE. THIS IS EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST OF THE 21 USED EXAMPLES OF THE 3-CENT 1861 RE-ISSUE RECORDED IN OUR CENSUS. A GREAT RARITY.
Our unpublished census of Scott 104 in used condition contains only 21 used examples of the 3c 1861 Re-Issue (one has never been certified). Of these, less than half are sound. The example offered here, in sound condition and with choice centering, is a true condition rarity.
