United States #359 3c Violet George Washington, 1909 Washington-Franklin Issue, Watermarked Double Lined USPS, Perf. 12 on Bluish Paper
A fresh and fine mint example of this elusive printing from this very popular series. Very lightly hinged in the bottom right and left side, with full and fresh OG. exceedingly scarce in this condition.
This stamp listed for $2,000 USD in my 2008 Scott catalogue. At today's exchange rate that is approximately $2,500. On E-bay I have noted that VG NH examples are selling for between $1,800-$3,000 USD. The example offered here grades F-70 as follows:
Paper freshness: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
This example comes with a clear 2019 PF certificate.
