VERY FINE AND CHOICE. AN EXTREMELY RARE SOUND USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1861 3-CENT PIGEON BLOOD PINK, CANCELLED IN BLUE.
The Pigeon Blood Pink shade, named for the rare ruby, is regarded as the most distinctive and rarest of the Pink shades. Unfortunately, the special bluish-pink tint of the true Pigeon Blood Pink is sensitive to light and other environmental factors. Therefore, examples kept in the dark over many years retain the true Pigeon Blood color, while others have lost it. This example retains its vivid color.
