    Description

    3c Bright Violet (302), absolutely perfect in every respect from its mathematical centering and large, perfectly balanced margins to its immaculate, never hinged original gum; a truly Superb gem. Scott $149.

    SMQ $3,800


    OF THE 89 NEVER HINGED EXAMPLES GRADED BY PSE, ONLY TWO HAVE BEEN GRADED HIGHER THAN 98 AND THOSE WERE BOTH 98J. WE FEEL THE JUMBO DESIGNATOR COULD EASILY HAVE BEEN APPLIED TO THIS EXAMPLE AS WELL.

    Expertization: PSE Encapsulated graded 98
