Sale 1247, Lot 233, 1875 Re-Issue of 1869 Pictorial Issue (Scott 123-133a)3c Blue, Re-Issue (125). Original gum, bright color and proof-like impression on crisp paper

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A RARE SOUND AND CENTERED ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 3-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL RE-ISSUE.

Original sales figures show that among the 1869 Pictorial Re-Issues, the 3c and 90c stamps accounted for the smallest number sold (1,406 and 1,356, respectively). Overall, the 1869's were popular with stamp collectors, far outselling the 1851-60 and 1861-66 Re-Issue sets. However, the 90c stamp's high cost and the wide availability of ordinary 3c stamps limited demand for those denominations. Today, both are rare, and handling over the years has not been kind to most of the surviving examples. This is a rare sound original-gum copy.

Sale 1247, Lot 247, 1875 Re-Issue of 1869 Pictorial Issue (Scott 123-133a)30c Blue & Carmine, Re-Issue (131). Original gum, deep rich colors, choice centering with enormous margins all around, certified as sound at least three times but with tiny tear at upper right (see history below)

EXTREMELY FINE APPEARING ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 30-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL RE-ISSUE.

This beautiful stamp has a contradictory certification history. It was offered in our 2007 sale of the Odeneal collection with a clear 1995 P.F. certificate (realized $15,000 hammer) but returned after receiving a 2007 P.S.E. certificate stating tiny tear at upper right. It was re-offered in our Sale 953 describing a tiny tear and with the 1993 P.F. and 2007 P.S.E. certificates. The 2007 P.S.E. certificate no longer accompanies. Sometime after our sale 953 it received a sound P.F. certificate (no. 465591) stating "genuine with large part o.g. disturbed". That certificate no longer accompanies and the gum does not appear disturbed (either in 2007-2008 or today). Most recently it received a 2019 P.F. certificate as "genuine, previously hinged" (VF-XF 85). We leave it to the buyer to sort out the opinions but in any event this is still a beautiful stamp.
