The only known unissued 3 kop stamp

1884, Numerals issue, 3k rose carmine on rose network, imperforated single printed on horizontally laid paper, balanced margins, perfect and flawless condition, no gum as produced, VF. This stamp is incorrectly listed in Chuchin Cat. under issue of 1869, and correctly - under 1884 in Prigara Monograph issued in 1981. According to Mr. Ustinovsky and other specialists the stamp was prepared for Russian Offices in Levant postcard rate (it has UPU legitimate carmine shade for Russian 3k stamp), but not officially issued because of rate changed to 4k (International postcard rate); all drawing presumably had been destroyed, except just handful remainder. Until now this stamp was not offered for a public, bought from V. Luchnik in the end of 1950's
