3857° ng Image2c Green & Black on Green Paper, Proprietary, Center Inverted (RB2d; formerly RB2bc). Unused (no gum), rich color on deep green paper, vignette shows clearly, three wide margins and perfs clear at right, completely sound

VERY FINE FOR THIS GREAT INVERT RARITY. ONE OF THE TWO FINEST EXAMPLES OF THE 2-CENT PROPRIETARY INVERT ON GREEN PAPER -- EITHER USED OR UNUSED.

In his privately published census, Larry Lyons records 13 copies of the 2c Proprietary Invert on green paper. One additional example has come to light since his census. Of the total recorded, nine appear to be unused, and all but a small handful have at least one fault. This is one of finest of that small sound population. The unused example offered in our Sale 1121 (lot 2047) has similar centering and is sound. The unused example offered in our Sale 1037 (lot 2407) is a bit closer at right and is also sound.
