United States of America #263 $5 Bluish Green Marshall, 1894 Unwatermarked Bureau Small Banknote Issue, a Fine Used Example


A fine used example of this rare high value $5 bluish green Marshall stamp from the unwatermarked 1894 Bureau Small Banknote Issue. Good colour, but somewhat heavy cancellation, consisting of two registry cancel strikes. The accompanying 2018 William T. Crowe certificate mentions very faint, light paper wrinkles, but I cannot see anything with my eyes.

2008 Scott lists this stamp at $2,600 USD, which is approximately $3,250. The example offered here grades F-65 as follows:

Centering/margins: 30/60

Paper freshness: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Impression: 5/5

Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5

Perforations: 10/10

Cancellation: 5/10
