Sale Number 1195, Lot Number 422, 1875 Re-Issue of 1861-66 Issue1c Blue, Re-Issue, 1900 Paris International Exhibition Special Printing, Imperforate (102 var), 1c Blue, Re-Issue, 1900 Paris International Exhibition Special Printing, Imperforate (102 var)1c Blue, Re-Issue, 1900 Paris International Exhibition Special Printing, Imperforate (102 var). Large margins to ample, rich color, top right corner crease slightly breaks the paper

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. THIS IS THE ONLY RECORDED EXAMPLE OF THE ONE-CENT 1861 RE-ISSUE SPECIAL PRINTING FROM THE 1900 PARIS INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION IN PRIVATE HANDS.

Research begun by Robert Meyersburg and continued by Michael Plett, Richard Drews and others has demonstrated that this item is not a proof "on thick India paper," as the P.F. opined in 2000. Comparisons were made between this stamp and items at the Smithsonian National Postal Museum from the 1900 Paris International Exhibition. This stamp was found to be an exact match for those items. The research was submitted to the A.P.S. in 2011 and the stamp received a new A.P.S. certificate in 2012. See Evans book pp. 82-83 for a summary of the philatelic aspects of the 1900 Paris Exhibition and this 1c Special Printing.

With 2000 P.F. certificate as "No. 63P3 on thick India paper". With 2012 A.P.S. certificate stating "Scott No. 102 variety, special printing from the 1900 Paris International Exhibition, genuine, UR corner crease". Also accompanied by a note from A.P.S. stating "the committee reports this should be listed as a a variety of Scott 102, not No. 63. If a proof was made after 1876, as this was, it should be listed under the re-issue numbers". With 1994 note from Robert Meyersburg stating this was salvaged by him from material recovered from the USPOD exhibit at the 1900 Exhibition
