Horizontal pair, intense shade and impression on bright paper, bold strikes of blue "Baltimore Md. Sep. 14" circular datestamp

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED PAIR OF THE 1861 24-CENT VIOLET ON THIN PAPER. MULTIPLES OF THIS SHADE ARE VIRTUALLY NON-EXISTENT.

A Power Search review indicates we have never offered a block, strip or another pair since keeping computerized records. Given the superior centering of the pair offered here, we wonder whether this rare intact artifact will survive another month.

With 1987 and 1991 P.F. certificates. Unlisted as a multiple in Scott. Scott Retail as singles
