Lot #193
UNITED STATES Proprietary Stamps
1874 3c green and black on green paper, center inverted, light pen cancel, centered to left, with a small thin spot at top and small stained spot at bottom, very fresh and bright colors, fine. This copy is one of the finest known, with 2002 Philatelic Foundation certificate. Scott catalogue notes that "No. RB3ad is valued with small faults as seven of the only eight recorded examples have faults". Of those, four are repaired, one has a corner missing, and three have additional faults. Without a doubt, this is one of the rarest U.S. stamps,
