Description

Airmail, 1918, 24ยข carmine rose & blue, center inverted (C3a), position 100 with natural straightedge at right and sheet margin at bottom, deep color and bright paper. O.g., lightly hinged. Fresh and Fine. Scott $170,000

UNQUESTIONABLY THE FINEST OF THE THREE CORNER MARGIN SINGLES.

Expertization: 1999 P.F. Certificate, signed Kessler, Sanabria, "Oriole".

The fourth of the corner copies is the lower left stamp in a corner margin block of 4.

The example with its bottom sheet margin endeared itself to both its former owner, Michael Rubin, as well as the current owner, Ron Scott, as they could immediately place their C3a on the sheet without the need to refer to the reconstruction chart. The fact that this example is in pristine condition as well produces a highly desirable "inverted Jenny" for the collector of United States stamps and errors.
