EXTREMELY FINE. VERY RARE IN THIS QUALITY WITH ORIGINAL GUM.

The 1894 unwatermarked issue was the first U.S. stamp issue printed by the Bureau of Engraving & Printing. This issue is notoriously difficult to find well-centered, as production was marred by initial problems as the Bureau feverishly worked to satisfy the public demand for stamps. The $2.00 is one of the rarest of the set in this original-gum condition and choice grade.
