receiver dated March 24, stamps well centered and with fresh colors#22g, 1c Green and black, Center and "Canal Zone" Inverted, horizontal pair tied to cover to Elyria, Ohio by a clear "N.Y. & Canal Zone/R.P.O/Mar 15/1909" duplex postmark, Elyria receiver dated March 24, stamps well centered and with fresh colors, one stamp with trivial surface scrape, cover with minor flaws including a backflap tear repaired with archival tape, very fine.The discovery of this inverted center is most interesting. According to "Canal Zone Stamps," a philatelist working at the Sanitary Department, Elmer Ohlson, found an envelope in the trash and tore off the corner with the stamp to put in his collection. After looking more closely at the stamp, he realized it had an inverted center. Mr. Ohlson then informed fellow philatelist Dr. J.C. Perry of his remarkable find. Dr. Perry in turn phoned philatelist Dr. C.C. Pierce, who was Quarantine Officer at Cristobal, asking him to search for more copies. Dr. Pierce found 22 mint examples from the mail clerk and sent them to Dr. Perry. When word of this new error came out, philatelists began searching envelopes for the remaining 78 copies that were used. A total of thirteen used examples were found including the two on this cover. This pair is the only example to have survived on cover. The Scott catalog specifically lists this pair on cover, but its value seems inadequate, being a mere 25% above the value of two off-cover singles.A great Canal Zone postal history rarity.

Apparently one pane was issued with the center inverted and all were used on commercial mail. Only nine copies were ever found, all used and nearly all with faults to some degree. This is the only example known on cover. Interestingly this cover is from the same correspondence as the unique One Cent invert (lot 207).Another important Canal Zone rarity from the Cunliffe collection.

Over the next six decades, three others were found (one badly defective) bringing the total number known today to four. One trait that all four copies share is blunted or scissor separated perforations on at least one side, leading to speculation that these errors emanated from booklet panes, making it even more remarkable this error was not noticed.One of the most famous of all Canal Zone errors. Accompanied by a 1953 PF certificate, as well as an article from Edward Conger relating his experience in trying to locate this stamp when it was still the only known example. ex-Conger.
