Sale 1267 — The Porter W. Venn II Collection of U.S. Postal Stationery, Part 1
Sale Date — Thursday, 20 October, 2022
Category — 1870-1871 Reay Issue (Scott U74-U107)
EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 3-CENT BROWN ON WHITE REAY ISSUE ERROR OF COLOR. A DESIRABLE POSTAL STATIONERY ERROR RARITY.
This is the only error of color among the Reay issues. The UPSS Catalog states six mint entires may exist, but we have offered only one other in at least 30 years and all of our Rarities sales, and that example had some minor edge soiling.
