12 Nov 2019  Tue

This 30 cents inverted ultramarine & carmine flags stamp of 1869 is one most outstanding philatelic rarity. 1869 pictorial marked signifies the important change in the U.S philately. It was also the first time in the history of the United States Philatelic that a different picture was depicted rather than the portrait of the leaders. According to the Siegel Census, only seven unused examples of the 1869 30c pictorial with inverted flags are known.

Only one stamp had the original gum and the other six have no gum. The unused cantered example of this great item was offered by Cherrystone at its auction that took place in July 2019. A similar specimen illustrating vibrant colors was the last time offered in 1960 H.R.Harmer’s sale for $6,000. This time the 30 cents inverted stamp was offered for $250,000.
