VERY FINE AND CHOICE UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE 24-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL ISSUE.
With 1999 P.F. certificate
EXTREMELY FINE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 30-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL, WITH A WONDERFUL COMBINATION OF COLOR, FRESHNESS AND CENTERING.
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.
