Sale Number 918, Lot Number 38, 1861-66 Issue30c Orange (71), 30c Orange (71)30c Orange (71). Original gum, choice centering for this difficult issue, vivid color in a bright vibrant shade

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 30-CENT 1861 ISSUE, WITH WONDERFUL GUM, CENTERING, COLOR AND PERFORATIONS.

The narrowly-spaced 30c 1861 plate left very little room for the 12-gauge perforations between stamps. Consequently, examples with wide margins at sides are extremely rare -- this fact is acknowledged in the Scott Catalogue footnote to No. 71.

With 1986 and 2003 P.F. certificates
