1753 og Image1c Dark Ultramarine, Special Printing (192). Without gum as issued, radiant color on crisp paper, new P.F. certificate describes two tiny thin spots and tiny corner perf crease at bottom left -- the "thin spots" are typical paper mesh airholes along the side of the stamp, and the "perf crease" could be eliminated simply by removing the excess paper from the bottom left, leaving an intact corner -- in our opinion this is a sound stamp

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A BEAUTIFUL EXAMPLE OF THE ONE-CENT 1880 AMERICAN BANK NOTE COMPANY SPECIAL PRINTING. ONLY 25 ARE RECORDED IN OUR CENSUS. ONE OF THE RAREST OF ALL CLASSIC UNITED STATES STAMPS.

Our comprehensive census of Scott 192 (available at http://www.siegelauctions.com/dynamic/census/192/192.pdf ) contains a total of 25 copies of Scott 192. Of these, thirteen are reported to be sound.

Census No. 192-UNC-24. With 2012 P.F. certificate (Image)
