    30¢ INVERTED FLAGS

    30c Ultramarine & Carmine, Inverted Flags (121b), very well centered with a light leaf-type cork cancel which allows the inversion of the flags to be highly visible, carmine color just a trifle pale, tiny repair, virtually unnoticeable, still quite an attractive example of this classic and exceedingly rare error. Scott $100,000.

    SMQ $53,000


    Expertization: PSE Encapsulated graded 50

    AMONG THE FINER CENTERED OF THE SMALL NUMBER OF SURVIVING 30¢ 1869 INVERTED FLAGS, THE RAREST OF THE NON-REVENUE INVERTS.

    There are less than 50 reported examples of the 30¢ with inverted flags, and most of these have faults to varying degrees.
