FINE. A RARE SOUND EXAMPLE OF THE 24-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL INVERT.
Our census of 24c 1869 Inverts, recently updated at our website at http://www.siegelauctions.com/dynamic/census/120b/120b.pdf , contains four unused, 83 used singles, one used pair, one on cover and the unique block of four, for a total of 94 copies of the perforated 24c Invert. Very few of the used examples are sound. This example is new to the census and has not been offered to the market for decades.
