FINE. A RARE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 6-CENT 1895 ISSUE WITH "USIR" WATERMARK.

The "USIR" (United States Internal Revenue) watermark error occurred when a supply of paper reserved for revenue stamp production was used for printing the 6c and 8c postage stamps. The 6c "USIR" Watermark error is considerably rarer than the 8c, especially in original-gum condition. We record less than ten original-gum copies. However, we are not certain how many of the stamps in multiples have the "I" or "R" portion of the watermark. (Image)

FINE. A RARE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 6-CENT 1895 ISSUE WITH "USIR" WATERMARK.

The "USIR" (United States Internal Revenue) watermark error occurred when a supply of paper reserved for revenue stamp production was used for printing the 6c and 8c postage stamps. The 6c "USIR" Watermark error is considerably rarer than the 8c, especially in original-gum condition. We record less than ten original-gum copies. However, we are not certain how many of the stamps in multiples have the "I" or "R" portion of the watermark. Of the recorded singles, one has perfs touching the design at top, and one is also very close on one side. The pair with original gum in the P.F. records is a top sheet margin horizontal pair, with part of the imprint above the left stamp. There was also a pair centered to top with a straight edge at left in the Lilly collection, as well as a strip of three centered to top in the Col. Green collection. (Image)
