EXTREMELY FINE. AN OUTSTANDING ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 30-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL WHICH HAS BEEN AWARDED THE GRADE OF XF 90 BY P.S.E.

The rarity of centered original-gum examples of the 30c 1869 with grill is somewhat obscured by the availability of off-center copies of the 30c with and without grill. If the scope were narrowed to Scott 121 only, and only grades of Very Fine or Extremely Fine were considered, we estimate that fewer than 15 examples would be counted. Among the qualifying stamps, this is without a doubt one of the finest extant.

With 2015 P.S.E. certificate (OGph, XF 90; SMQ $17,000.00). Only two have been graded higher (at 90J and 95 -- the latter offered in our 2009 sale of the Beverly Hills collection). This is the only original-gum stamp to achieve a 90 grade

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A BEAUTIFULLY-PRESERVED EXAMPLE OF THE 3-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL RE-ISSUE.

Original sales figures show that among the 1869 Pictorial Re-Issues, the 3c and 90c stamps accounted for the smallest number of units sold (1,406 and 1,356, respectively). Overall, the 1869's were popular with stamp collectors, far outselling the 1851-60 and 1861-66 Re-Issue sets. However, the 90c stamp's high denomination and the availability of ordinary 3c stamps limited demand. Today, both are rare, and handling over the years has not been kind to most of the surviving examples.

Ex Eugene Joyce and Scarsdale. With 1974 and 2000 P.F. certificates.
