Lot #52

United States 1861-66 Issue

1861 3c pink, unused with full original gum, h.r., radiant unmistakably pink color, well centered, nice color, slightly short perf at top and small corner crease at bottom left, v.f., ex-Caspary (3c pink is one of the most difficult stamps to find well centered, original gum, with fresh color. Due to the nature of ink used to print the Pink shade, with exposure to light and other adverse elements, the color tends to oxidize and fade over time)
