5-CENT BLACK ON GREENISH YELLOW.
Prior to the sale of this block in our Sale 1101 (Stimmell collection), in all of our auctions dating back to 1993 and Rarities sales since 1964, we had not offered even a single unused example of the Pomeroy 5c on Yellow Surface-Colored Paper (117L1). Unlike the common unused stamps on thick wove and thin bond, which are remainders, there were no supplies of this first issue left to collectors.
Ex Sloane, Stimmell and Dr. Puliafito. With 2015 P.F. certificate
EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. ONE OF THE FINEST OF THE 21 RECORDED COVERS BEARING THE EXTREMELY RARE POMEROY FIRST ISSUE WITH BLANK VALUE TABLET.
This stamp comes from one of the positions on the plate with the value "20 for $1" incomplete ("$1" removed). This state of the plate was used only for printing stamps in Black on Yellow paper. The Independent Mails book reports 21 covers with the Value Incomplete stamp in the Pomeroy census.
