    Description

    Used Pair of 24c 1869 Inverts

    24c Green & Violet, Center Inverted (120b), horizontal pair, each stamp canceled by neat rosette fancy cancels, especially well centered for the issue, rich vibrant colors and proof-like impressions on crisp white paper, the pair very lightly stamped "Pemberton, Wilson & Co." on the back, Very Fine and drastically undercatalogued.

    Scott with minimal faults $57,500


    Expertization: 2007 P.S.E. and 1970 P.F. Certificates.

    Provenance: Zoellner.

    THE FINER OF TWO RECORDED PAIRS AND ONE OF ONLY THREE KNOWN MULTIPLES OF ANY OF THE 1869 INVERTS. AMONGST THE BEST CENTERED OF ALL RECORDED EXAMPLES. GIVEN THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE 24C INVERTS ARE FAULTY AND OR HEAVILY CANCELLED, THE EXISTENCE OF THIS SOUND, WELL CENTERED PAIR, WITH CANCELS LIGHT ENOUGH TO ALLOW THE INVERTED VIGNETTE TO BE PLAINLY VISIBLE, IS SIMPLE MIRACULOUS.
