EXTREMELY FINE APPEARING ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 15-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL ISSUE.

With 1995 P.F. certificate as sound. With 2009 P.S.E. certificate as reperfed at top. The width of the margins at top and bottom and a match-up of perfs using Photoshop lead us to conclude that this stamp is not reperfed
