EXTREMELY FINE. A STUNNING EXAMPLE OF THE $200.00 "SMALL PERSIAN RUG" GRADED XF 90 BY P.S.E -- ONE OF THE MOST COLORFUL STAMPS IN UNITED STATES PHILATELY.

Both the Small and Large "Persian Rug" stamps were printed in sheets of one. Because of their size, the large number of perforations on each stamp, and the fact that they were used on documents which were frequently folded across the stamps, sound examples of the multicolored "Persian Rug" issues are extremely rare.

Only 446 of the small "Persian Rug" were issued. Ex Helton. With 2012 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90; Revenues are unpriced in SMQ).
