Sale Number 1221, Lot Number 1754, Revenues, Second thru Third Issues, Proprietary, Stock Transfer$200.00 Red, Blue & Black, Second Issue, "Small Persian Rug" (R132), $200.00 Red, Blue & Black, Second Issue, "Small Persian Rug" (R132)$200.00 Red, Blue & Black, Second Issue, "Small Persian Rug" (R132). Bright fresh colors, choice centering and margins, perfs well clear of design all around, unobtrusive manuscript July 5, 1872 cancel, in our opinion completely sound, but the P.F. certificate describes "light creases" which are really nothing but the slightest wrinkles

VERY FINE EXAMPLE OF THE $200.00 "SMALL PERSIAN RUG" -- 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 and centered examples of the multicolored "Persian Rug" issues are extremely rare.

With 2013 P.F. certificate
