United States #365 13c Blue Green George Washington, 1909 Washington-Franklin Issue, Watermarked Double Lined USPS, Perf. 12 on Bluish Paper
An attractive and VF used example of this elusive printing from this very popular series, with a light CDS cancellation.
This stamp listed for $2,250 USD in my 2008 Scott catalogue and at $3,000 for mint. At today's exchange rate that is approximately $2,800. On E-bay I have noted that a fine OG example was recently priced at $5,000 USD. So, it would appear that the Scott values have increased by over 60% since 2008. So, it should be a good buy at our price. The example offered here grades VF-75 as follows:
Paper freshness: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
This example comes with a clear 1986 APS certificate.
