EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS IS WITHOUT QUESTION ONE OF THE FINEST ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLES OF THE 2-CENT 1861 RE-ISSUE IN EXISTENCE. A PHENOMENAL STAMP IN TERMS OF GUM, CENTERING, MARGIN SIZE AND IMPRESSION.

The 2c Re-Issue was printed from a new plate of 100 subjects, compared to the original plate of 200 in two panes. 10,000 stamps were printed (100 impressions). Only 979 of the 2c were sold; the remaining 9,021 were destroyed on July 16, 1884. The 2c plate can be easily identified by a spot on the cheek. Although the 2c Black Jack Re-Issue plate left ample space between stamps, centering and margins on this issue still present a problem, as the vast majority are off center. If we look at just the original-gum examples, very few can be placed in the same class to which this stamp belongs.

With 1968 and 2018 P.F. certificates

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB EXAMPLE OF THE 3-CENT 1861 RE-ISSUE -- ONE OF THE RAREST OF THE SET IN THIS CHOICE CONDITION.

The 3c Re-Issue was printed from the original plate, which contained 200 subjects in two panes. 10,000 stamps were printed (50 impressions). Only 465 of the 3c were sold; the remaining 9,535 were destroyed on July 16, 1884. The 3c is one of the three most difficult stamps in the set to obtain in this Extremely Fine Gem original-gum condition (the others are the 24c and 30c). It is rarely found well-centered, and those in Very Fine or Extremely Fine grade usually have either disturbed gum or no gum at all. In this stamp, we have the rare combination of choice centering and original gum, elevating it to one of the finest extant.

Original gum, lightly hinged, sharp proof-like impression on crisp bright paper, beautiful centering with long and full perforations

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A WONDERFULLY CHOICE EXAMPLE OF ONE OF THE RAREST 1861-66 RE-ISSUES. THE 24-CENT IS EXCEEDINGLY DIFFICULT TO LOCATE IN THIS SUPERB ORIGINAL-GUM CONDITION.

The 24c Re-Issue was printed from the original plate of 200 subjects.10,000 were printed (50 impressions). Only 346 of the 24c were sold; the remaining 9,654 were destroyed on July 16, 1884.

The quantity issued for the 24c 1861 Re-Issue (346) is close in number to several lower values, including the 12c and 15c (389 and 397, respectively). However, the 24c is scarcer and appears less frequently at auction. It is also one of the three values most difficult to obtain in choice original-gum condition (the others are the 3c and 30c). Though this is not graded, looking at the P.S.E. Population Report, two are graded 95 (we have never offered either) and four are graded 90 (last we offered was in 2010).

Little space was left on the 30c 1861 plate for vertical rows of perforations between stamps, and the same plate was used for the 1875 Re-Issue. Therefore, well-centered copies with perforations clear at the sides are rare.
