175° og image90c Dull Carmine, Special Printing (202). Without gum as issued, bright color, choice centering and wide margins

EXTREMELY FINE. APPROXIMATELY 40 EXAMPLES OF THE 90-CENT 1880 AMERICAN BANK NOTE COMPANY SPECIAL PRINTINGS ARE KNOWN TO EXIST. THIS STAMP IS ONE OF THE FINEST EXTANT.

The 90c 1880 Special Printing on soft paper is notorious for its condition (thins affect most of the known examples) and typically poor centering. In this stamp we have the rare combination of soundness, margins and centering, as well as extraordinary freshness. With the demand for Special Printings so strong, we anticipate collectors will display exuberance in bidding for this Extremely Fine stamp.

176° og image2c Scarlet Vermilion, Special Printing (203). Without gum as issued, well-centered for this difficult stamp with wide margins, beautiful rich color on fresh bright paper

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. THIS IS ONE OF THE RAREST OF ALL BANK NOTE SPECIAL PRINTINGS. OUR CENSUS RECORDS ONLY 20 EXAMPLES OF THE 2-CENT SCARLET VERMILION 1880 AMERICAN BANK NOTE COMPANY SPECIAL PRINTING, AND THIS IS ONE OF THE FINEST COPIES IN EXISTENCE.

Our census of Scott 203 published in the Zoellner catalogue (and updated at our website at: http://siegelaucti ons.com/enc/census/203/203.htm) contains only 19 stamps which are available to collectors. The 20th copy is in the Miller collection at The New York Public Library. This is the first example we have offered at auction in more than five years, and it is quite possible an example in this choice condition could fetch a six-figure price.
