Our recently updated census records for Scott 193 contain 47 certified examples, of which almost half half faults (mostly thins). Of the sound examples, nearly all are centered to top or one side. The example offered here, with wide margins, should be considered desirable.

VERY FINE EXAMPLE OF THE 6-CENT 1880 AMERICAN BANK NOTE COMPANY SPECIAL PRINTING. FEWER THAN 30 ARE BELIEVED TO EXIST.

Our recently updated census records contain 26 certified examples of Scott 195, an oddly low number. Some of the stamps submitted as the Special Printing, but certified as the regular issue, Scott 186, could in fact be Special Printing stamps (the two are difficult to tell apart). We record another three stamps which we feel are possibly Scott 195, despite previous P.F. certification.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. EASILY ONE OF THE TWO OR THREE FINEST EXAMPLES OF THE 7-CENT 1880 AMERICAN BANK NOTE COMPANY SPECIAL PRINTING.

Our recently updated census records for Scott 196 contain approximately 80 certified examples. It is the most common of the soft-paper Special Printings because the 7c was no longer in production in 1880 and, probably to some degree, because it can be easily identified since there is no regular issue on soft paper.

Our recently updated census records for Scott 197 contain 30 certified examples. Of these, eight have faults, leaving only 22 sound or potentially sound examples (some have not been examined in many years). Perhaps one or two of the sound copies are as well-centered as the one offered here.

The 90c 1880 Special Printing on soft paper is notorious for its condition (thins affect most of the known examples) and typically poor centering. This stamp is in a remarkable state of preservation.
