EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. THIS IS EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST OF THE 21 USED EXAMPLES OF THE 3-CENT 1861 RE-ISSUE RECORDED IN OUR CENSUS. A GREAT RARITY.

The 3c Re-Issue was printed from the original plate, which contained 200 subjects in two panes. 10,000 were printed (50 impressions). Only 465 of the 3c were sold; the remaining 9,535 were destroyed on July 16, 1884.

Our census of Scott 104 used, available at our website at http://siegelauctions.com/dynamic/census/104/104.pdf, records 21 examples, plus one with a non-contemporary cancel (not shown). Most have duplex cancels, with a large portion sent from New York.
