Penny Passage – Weekly Feature #425

The 1864 Penny Reds have an enduring popularity.  In its day and for more than fifty years a penny would secure the passage of a letter. This year our government will cease the minting of the penny, the Passage of the Penny, if you will, and it takes more than 60 to mail a letter.  Here is your chance to collect a well-centred block of 10 from Plate #145, Positions ‘MD’ through ‘NH’. It has the usual crackled gum but the bottom row has three never hinged examples. The Scott Catalogue value of $375.  is for 10 singles. Our Price: $195.00
