    AN INCOMPARABLE 3¢ RE-ISSUE

    3c Blue Re-Issue (125), beautifully centered with large balanced margins and glowing pastel color on bright paper; original gum, fresh and choice Extremely Fine. Scott $5,500.

    SMQ $12,900


    Expertization: PSE Encapsulated graded 90

    A SIMPLY SPECTACULAR 3¢ RE-ISSUE WITH THE FINEST COMBINATION OF CENTERING AND LARGE MARGINS WE HAVE EVER SEEN ON THIS DENOMINATION.

    The 3¢ 1869 re-issue is the second most rare and unquestionably the most difficult in the set to locate in choice condition. The centering usually ranges from fine to below average, and many examples have lost their original gum.
    Only 9 mint examples have been graded by the PSE to date, and only one of these grades higher. In our opinion, especially given the size of this stamp's margins, this stamp easily rivals the one 95 grade extant, and may well be a contender for the finest known.
