Fresh from the JT EST. EAS_STAMPS is offering: Very rare. Author's note, What makes a stamp rare, while the CSA #1 was issued as the normal issue stamp, you as a collector have to realize that only a portion of the US used this stamp and only for a very short time. The connotation of the civil war may not be of interest to many, it does represent part of our historical past (shaded as it may be).
In comparison the Scott #65 was issued probably 10,000 to 1 of the Scott CSA #1 #65 issued to the Union states and CSA #1 issued to confederate states. US CSA #1 Unused trial color proof possibly issued without gum F/VF in 1861. Please be respectful to our clients, they have entrusted us to try and get the highest price possible. If you would like to have your stamp come with a PSAG certification, please let us know and we will take care of that for you. Grading is suggested for this item, please disregard next statement.
While this stamp is considered to be sound we do not provide grading. EAS_STAMPS is a proud member of the TSDA (Texas Stamp Dealers Association) and APS (American Philatelic Society) APS # 236251. Thank you customer's without you we could not offer our clients away to sell their stamps without going through the humility of going from dealer after dealer only to be told what they did wrong. Moreover our clients built this industry.
