    Description

    A SUPERB NEVER HINGED 15¢ AMERICAN

    15c Red Orange (189), centered with mathematical precision amid large, beautifully balanced margins with vibrant color and pristine, never hinged original gum; fresh and choice and absolutely Superb. Scott $1,000.

    SMQ $11,800


    Expertization: 2002 PSE Certificate graded 98

    THE CENTERING, COLOR, IMPRESSION, PAPER AND GUM ALL CAME TOGETHER ON THIS SUPERB GEM- ONE OF THREE GRADED 98 BY THE PSE TO DATE, WITH ONLY ONE HIGHER.

    The soft paper used by the American Bank Note Company is very prone to damage; the orange color often oxidizes; centering was absolutely not a priority for the production values at the time; a lot can happen to gum in 120 years. The fact that this example survived in this quality is quite a feat indeed.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
