VERY FINE AND CHOICE. AN INCALCULABLY RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 12-CENT 1857 ISSUE FROM PLATE ONE WITH A GREEN CANCEL. THIS IS THE FIRST WE HAVE OFFERED SINCE KEEPING COMPUTERIZED RECORDS.
The cancel on this stamp is a true green color, not bluish-green or an adulterated green ink. The cancel's unusual configuration and distinctive green color make this 12c 1857 stamp one of the most striking we have ever encountered.
