Sale Number 1179, Lot Number 2332, 1901 Pan-American Issue (Scott 294-299)1c Pan-American, Center Inverted (294a), 1c Pan-American, Center Inverted (294a)1c Pan-American, Center Inverted (294a). Slightly disturbed original gum, deep rich colors, detailed impressions, well-centered

EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE ONE-CENT PAN-AMERICAN INVERT.

According to Johl, the 1c Pan-American Inverts were found in at least four different post offices around the country soon after release of the issue in May 1901, including Bessemer Ala., Richmond Va., Utica N.Y. and Connecticut.

With 2017 P.S.E. certificate (DOG, XF 90; SMQ $37,500.00 as hinged). This is the highest grade awarded and only six others share this desirable grade.

Sale Number 1179, Lot Number 2333, 1901 Pan-American Issue (Scott 294-299)2c Pan-American, Center Inverted (295a), 2c Pan-American, Center Inverted (295a)2c Pan-American, Center Inverted (295a). Bright colors and well-centered, machine cancel leaves entire design clearly visible, few flaws including slight creasing, small tear at bottom and reperfed at top but without repairs

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. ONLY SEVEN USED EXAMPLES OF THE 2-CENT PAN-AMERICAN INVERT ARE KNOWN, AND NONE ARE SOUND.

Our census of the 2c Pan-American Invert in used condition records only seven copies, and is available at our website at https://siegelauctions.com/census/us/scott/295a . None are sound -- two are reperfed, one has a tear and another is thinned. Three others have minor flaws.

Census No. 295a-CAN-05. Ex Curtis. With 1970 and 2018 P.F. certificates. With 2013 P.S.E. certificate which mentions a tiny corner repair -- it is not repaired and the 2018 P.F. certificate confirms this. In our opinion this is very undercatalogued in Scott -- the unused invert catalogues $55,000.00 in Scott and is significantly more plentiful with approximately 64 unused singles known -- the same price is given for the used invert with only seven known.
