FINE APPEARANCE. A SCARCE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 90-CENT 1860 ISSUE WITH WHAT IS ESSENTIALLY A FANCY CANCELLATION.
Most used examples of the 90c 1860 Issue have either a circular datestamp, standard killer or pen cancel. The stamp offered here, with an unusual cancel consisting of a grid of small rectangles, is an extremely unusual example of a non-standard killer cancel on the 90c 1860.
Ex Saadi. With 1973 and 1993 P.F. and 2014 P.S.E. certificates.
