Sale 904, Lot 108, 1869 Pictorial Issue15c Brown & Blue, Ty. II (119). Barely disturbed original gum (as described on certificate, but in our opinion lightly hinged), deep rich colors and proof-like impressions, virtually perfect centering with evenly-balanced margins

EXTREMELY FINE EXAMPLE OF THE 15-CENT TYPE II 1869 PICTORIAL ISSUE.

This superb stamp has the brilliance of its re-issue counterpart, Scott 129, which is rarely encountered in stamps from the 1869 Type II printing.

With 2005 P.F. certificate
