II, Center Inverted (119b)15c Brown & Blue, Ty. II, Center Inverted (119b). Beautiful deep rich colors and intense impressions, light strike of cork cancellation leaves vignette clearly visible, centered slightly to lower left but perfs are clear all around

FINE. ONE OF THE FEW SOUND EXAMPLES OF THE 15-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL INVERT ERROR IN EXISTENCE.

Our census of Scott 119b, available at our website at https://siegelauctions.com/census/us/scott/119b , records three unused and 102 used copies (there are an additional three used examples of Scott 119c). Two of the used copies are in institutions -- the Tapling Collection at The British Library and the Miller collection owned by The New York Public Library. We estimate that approximately fifteen used copies are sound, including copies with tiny corner creases. A large number -- more than half -- have serious faults or repairs. The stamp offered here, in completely sound condition, is a very desirable example of this rarity.

Census no. 119b-CAN-69. Small purple backstamp. With 1990 and 2002 P.F. certificates

Rich colors, light cork cancel red circular datestamp which allow the vignette to be clearly seen

FINE. A RARE SOUND EXAMPLE OF THE 24-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL ISSUE INVERT, WHICH IS ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE BY VIRTUE OF THE RED COLORED CANCEL. A SMALL MINORITY OF THE 94 EXAMPLES RECORDED IN OUR CENSUS ARE SOUND.

Our census of 24c 1869 Inverts, available at our website at https://siegelauctions.com/census/us/scott/120b , contains four unused, 83 used singles, one used pair, one on cover and the unique block of four, for a total of 94 copies of the perforated 24c Invert. Excluding the unused singles, used block and used pair, there are perhaps 15 sound singles. The example offered here is particularly desirable by virtue of the red cancel.

Census no. 120b-CAN-53. Ex Lopez and Dr. Dauer. With 1957, 1990 and 2005 P.F. certificates. Scott value is for "fine centered copies with only minimal faults."

Of the ten used "centered" copies, only three are sound. This example, in sound condition and with Very Fine centering, is a great condition rarity.
