Sale 1014, Lot 2400, Newspapers & Periodicals (Scott PR5-PR125)6c Intense Black, 1894 Unwatermarked Bureau Issue (PR93). Original gum, lightly hinged, perfectly centered with wide and well-proportioned margins, sharp proof-like impression

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. PROBABLY THE FINEST EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 6-CENT 1894 UNWATERMARKED NEWSPAPER STAMP IN EXISTENCE.

In our opinion, the catalogue value for this stamp is not commensurate with its rarity. There was only one printing of the 6c of this series, and only 9,705 stamps were issued. The following statistics for other rare values of the set proves our point: 36c (PR97)--9,935 issued--cat. $50,000; 96c (PR99)--7,827 issued--cat. $52,500; $3.00 (PR100)--9,215 issued--cat. $60,000; $6.00 (PR101)--5,250 issued--cat. $60,000. In comparison, the 6c, with just 9,705 issued, has a catalogue value of only $3,750.

1940 American Board of Experts and 1965 P.F. certificates no longer accompany. With 1992 P.F. certificate.
