Complete set, ample margins to clear, without gum as issued, rich colors, 24c and 90c tiny thin spots, 30c pressed horizontal crease

FINE-VERY APPEARANCE. A SCARCE COMPLETE SET OF THE 1860 IMPERFORATE ISSUE. THIS IS A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE ALL THREE VALUES OF THIS IMPERFORATE VARIETY AT ONCE.

According to Brookman, the 24c, 30c and 90c 1860 Imperforates come from a trial printing of the finished designs submitted to the Postmaster General for final opinion. The designs and colors match the regular issues (unlike essays and trial color proofs). For many years these were listed in the front of Scott Catalogue. Only one pair of the 90c is known, which we sold in our 1994 Rarities sale.

Ex Fekete. With 1989, 1988 and 1988 P.F. certificates respectively

FINE. A SCARCE ORIGINAL-GUM BLOCK OF FOUR OF THE 30-CENT 1860 ISSUE.

This block clearly demonstrates why it is so difficult to find this issue with choice centering. The narrow space between subjects on the plate makes it almost impossible for the perforations to clear the design on all four sides.

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.
