    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


    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.

    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.
