3c Brown (J3). Mint N.H., brilliant color and detailed impression, choice centering with wide and balanced margins
EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 1879 3-CENT BROWN POSTAGE DUE ISSUE, WHICH HAS BEEN GRADED 95 BY P.S.E.
With 1999 P.F. certificate. With 2004 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $1,000.00). This is the only stamp to achieve this high grade to date. In our opinion, SMQ values are very conservative for high-grade Mint N.H. Postage Dues in general
