VERY FINE. THE 3-CENT 1880 AMERICAN BANK NOTE COMPANY SOFT-PAPER SPECIAL PRINTING IS ONE OF THE RAREST OF ALL SPECIAL PRINTINGS -- OUR CENSUS RECORDS ONLY FOURTEEN EXAMPLES, MAKING THIS ONE OF THE RAREST OF ALL SPECIAL PRINTINGS.

Our census of Scott 194, available at our website at http://siegelauctions.com/enc/census/194/194.htm, contains only fourteen examples. This puts it squarely in the company of the rarest Special Printings, such as Scott Nos. 180 (24 known), 181 (10 known), 203 (20 known), 204 (18 known), 205C (21 known) and 211D (25 known). It is the rarest of any Bank Note Special Printing among the Scott-listed "sets" (167-177 and 192-202).
