Lot Number: 141404
Scott #: 124 -5
Year: 1875
Description: 1975 PF Certificate. Blue. Tied to piece, 4c envelope; #U255, along with 2c Brown re-issue; #124. Canceled by 'New York A/Mar 18/1884' duplex, 3c stamp with natural straight-edge at left, both stamps are exceptionally fresh, stamps have been lifted and hinged back in place. The piece itself has a thin on the back not affecting the stamps, which are both sound.

This wonderful piece is one of the most desirable used Three Cent 1869 Pictorial re-issues in existence.

Of the less than fifteen recorded copies, nearly all have faults. Not only is this example sound, but it is also the only one to clearly show a year date cancel. This being the only one to be found on piece, it is currently the closest to an 'on cover' example that one can get. (Caspary had a full cover, but that was 50 years ago and it has not been seen in the market since). Note: The Scott catalog value is for 'an attractive fine-very fine example with minimal faults' and refers to a single stamp, and does not include any premium for on piece.
