Description

Airmail, 1918, 24ยข carmine rose & blue, center inverted (C3a), Position 100 with natural straight edge at right and sheet margin at bottom, deep color, original gum lightly hinged. Fresh and Fine. Scott $225,000

UNQUESTIONABLY THE FINEST OF THE THREE CORNER MARGIN SINGLES.

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

Provenance: Rubin, Scott.

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

This example, with its bottom sheet margin, appealed to both of its former owners, Michael Rubin and Ron Scott, because one could immediately place its position in the sheet without having to refer to the reconstruction chart. The fact that it is in pristine condition as well, makes this a highly desirable "Inverted Jenny" for the collector of United States stamps and errors.
