Description

USA 1875 10c deep bluish green Washington (Reprint), SG47.

A wonderful fresh unused (without gum as issued) example of this scarce 1875 production reprint on white paper by the Continental Bank Note Co. for the 1876 Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia. Much better centering than most examples.

This stamp is a reprint of the 10¢ stamp from the series of 1857-61. It was issued for collectors only and not for postal use. Only 516 were produced with just 43 stamps being sold. The remaining examples were destroyed. As a result, this is an extremely scarce stamp and insufficient examples exist to satisfy collector demand.

The paper on this issue is harder and whiter than the original. The perforations are also different. (The first issue was perforated 15½.)

Accompanied with a 1987 Philatelic Foundation, New York (PF) Certificate of Authenticity.
