Description: TUSCANY: 1860 Coat of Arms 3L yellow-ochre Mi 23, margins just clear to close, strong colour, straight-line '[PER CO]NSEGNA' cancellation, Cat 70,000. George Buhler Certificate (1993) states "echt und in feiner Erhaltung!...eine Weltseltenheit!" (= is genuine in very fine condition...a World rarity). The certificate also says - translated - "has margins on all sides and deep colour...only very few remain in existence". Subesequently additional certificates were obtained from the Italian experts Enzo Diena (1994) who stated "it is genuine & a great rarity", and Georgio Cossa Asinelli (2009) who echoed his predecessors.

[** As noted on the Cossa Asinelli Certificate, the stamp has been professionally repaired at upper-right. We are grateful for the translations provided by two Italian clients. Our vendor has requested that we reduce the estimate/reserve to $6000/$4500 respectively **]
