A thorough search through past auction catalogues will demonstrate how rare this stamp is in both used and sound condition. Our census of Scott 78c, available at our website at http://www.siegelauctions.com/dynamic/census/78c/78c.pdf , records a total of 44 used examples of this issue, of which only 37 have been certified as genuine by the Philatelic Foundation. We also record eight on cover. Of the used off cover copies, a mere ten are confirmed as sound.
