    THE HIGHEST GRADED 1¢ 1869

    1c Buff (112), Post Office fresh with choice centering, exceptional color and full, absolutely pristine, never hinged original gum; Extremely Fine to Superb. Scott $800 for hinged.

    SMQ $3,400 for hinged


    Expertization: 2005 PSE Certificate graded 95

    A STUNNING MINT SINGLE AND A TRUE CONDITION RARITY.

    In our many years of experience, the lowly 1¢ of the 1869 issue has been a real stumbling block to a choice set of 1869s. Truly well centered mint singles rarely make an appearance, and adding "never hinged" as a requirement reduces the chance of locating an example to near zero. The example offered here is the only one to have achieved to date the PSE grade of 95, and there is no higher (even in hinged condition there is only one 95 and none higher). A rare opportunity to build on or complete the ultimate set of the 1869 issue.
