Victorian Variety — Weekly Feature #423

Late in the run of the Large Queens Series a variety was issued in the 15¢.  The 1874 Victoria 15¢ Large Queen in greyish purple, perf. 11.5/12.  Used with a bold fancy cork cancel and intact perforations.  A scarce large Queen, made all the more interesting by being a sound Very Fine.  Our Price $350.  Update:  we have an embarrassing situation with this lovely stamp.  With the rising prices for Classic stamps the catalogue value still seemed high.  However we did not double-check whether we had the correct column in the catalogue and entered the price for mint.  The correct catalogue value is $500. and we have lowered the price to $350.
