FRESH AND FINE EXAMPLE OF THE 2-CENT PANAMA-PACIFIC IN THE RARE LAKE SHADE.

According to Johl, "there is one shade that is practically as scarce as the four-cent Blue of the Columbian issue, this is known as Lake, almost the same color as were the Postage Due stamps current at that time. Only one pane of 70 is said to have been found at a Post Office in San Francisco, although it hardly seems possible that but one sheet could have been printed in this dark color. When these were discovered there were only 40 copies left; 31 were purchased by A.L., an old-time collector, and 9 by a local dealer."

With 1984 P.F. and 1998 P.S.E. certificates

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SPECTACULAR ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT PERF 10 PANAMA-PACIFIC, AWARDED THE PERFECT GRADE OF GEM 100 BY P.S.E.

Ex Merlin and "Alan". With 1985 P.F., 2011 and 2016 P.S.E. certificates (OGph, Gem 100; SMQ $2,850.00). This is the highest grade awarded to a hinged stamp, and it has been equaled by only one other (also one Mint N.H. graded 100). For the collector who values centering more than never-hinged gum, this stamp presents a rare opportunity, and would be a marvelous capstone to a superb Panama-Pacific set.
