1880 Special Printing 15c stamp valued at $37,500 with Regency Superior

October 27th, 2013

A fine example of the 15c stamp from the US 1880 Special Printing will provide one of many highlights at Regency Superior's November 22-24 sale as the official auctioneer of Chicagopex 2013.

There are less than 50 known examples of the 15c, with only around 10-12 in sound condition. This example is fresh and bright, in unused condition without gum as issued. Although poorly centred (as is usual), the stamp is valued at $37,500.

Chicagopex is the annual meeting of the Chicago Philatelic Society and will feature a philatelic exhibition, philatelic literature exhibition and the auction, as well as an awards banquet.
