Sale Number 918, Lot Number 28, 1857-60 Issue24c Gray Lilac (37), 24c Gray Lilac (37)24c Gray Lilac (37). Original gum, beautifully centered with wide and balanced margins, wonderfully rich color and detailed impression

EXTREMELY FINE. A SUPERB ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 24-CENT GRAY LILAC.

Collectors looking for Gem quality stamps (unused and used) from the 1857 perforated issue know that one of the most difficult denominations to obtain is the 24c value. The margins are often narrow, with the design almost always touched (if not in) at top or bottom. This is one of the finest original-gum examples we have ever offered.

With 1998 P.F. certificate
