3418 ng 1c Deep Brown, Special Printing (J8).> Unused (no gum), deep rich color and proof-like impression<><>^FINE EXAMPLE OF THE RARE ONE-CENT POSTAGE DUE SPECIAL PRINTING.^<><>The 1c, 2c and 3c are undoubtedly the
rarest values of the American Bank Not1c Deep Brown, Special Printing (J8). Unused (no gum), deep rich color and proof-like impression

FINE EXAMPLE OF THE RARE ONE-CENT POSTAGE DUE SPECIAL PRINTING.

The 1c, 2c and 3c are undoubtedly the rarest values of the American Bank Note Co. Postage Due Special Printings, although the sold quantities in the official records are relatively high. William E. Mooz, in an article on the 1c appearing in Chronicle No. 170, May 1996, offers evidence to support his theory that the actual number of true Special Printings sold was significantly lower than the reported figures. For the 1c, Mooz estimates 500 sold, but it is possible that as many as 400 purchased by G. B. Calman were destroyed. It is widely accepted that nearly 9,000 1c stamps sold as Special Printings were actually regular issues.

EXTREMELY FINE. THIS SUPERB STAMP IS ONE OF THE FINEST EXAMPLES OF THE RARE 2-CENT POSTAGE DUE SPECIAL PRINTING.

As noted in the description of lot 3418, the reported sale figures for the 1c, 2c and 3c Postage Due Special Printings probably include orders filled with regular stamps. The 2c is one of the rarest of the set, especially in this sound and centered original-gum condition.

3420 ng 3c Deep Brown, Special Printing (J10).> Unused (no gum), bright color and detailed impression, choice centering for this difficult issue<><>^EXTREMELY FINE. THE 3-CENT IS POSSIBLY THE RAREST OF THE POSTAGE DUE
SPECIAL PRINTINGS, AND IS EXTREMELY EL3c Deep Brown, Special Printing (J10). Unused (no gum), bright color and detailed impression, choice centering for this difficult issue

EXTREMELY FINE. THE 3-CENT IS POSSIBLY THE RAREST OF THE POSTAGE DUE SPECIAL PRINTINGS, AND IS EXTREMELY ELUSIVE IN SOUND AND CENTERED CONDITION.

Although 436 copies were reported sold, it is believed that 100 copies were destroyed in the Calman lot. A thorough search of the marketplace, combined with conversations with dealers and collectors, has confirmed the extreme rarity of this stamp.

This is the sixth example we have sold in the last five years. The other five are the Zoellner copy (original gum, inclusion, poorly centered), the Drucker copy (no gum, poorly centered), a third copy (original gum, reperfed at top), a fourth copy (part original gum, small crease), and a fifth copy (no gum and sound). This sound and centered copy should be considered very desirable.
