Description

3c Playing Cards, Green, Imperforate (R17a). Unused (no gum), large margins to ample at top, outstanding deep color and highly detailed impression
EXTREMELY FINE. ONLY A FEW UNUSED EXAMPLES OF THE RARE 3-CENT IMPERFORATE PLAYING CARDS ISSUE ARE KNOWN. THIS IS ONE OF THE TWO FINEST—BOTH IN SOUND CONDITION WITH FOUR MARGINS.
A review using Power Search reveals that this is only the third unused example of this stamp we have offered in our sales going back to 1993 and in our Rarities sales since 1966. It seems inevitable that the Scott Catalogue will begin to price First thru Third Issue unused Revenues. In that event, the catalogue value for an unused 3c Playing Cards Imperforate stamp will be far greater than that of a used example.
Ex Cunliffe. With 2008 and 2019 P.F. certificates. Scott value as used
