1875 Continental Bank Note Co. Hard Paper Special Printing (Scott 167-175) continued...
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
2805 og Image15c Bright Orange, Special Printing (174). Without gum as issued, brilliant color on bright paper, scissors-separated as usual but leaving intact perforations on all sides, choice centering

EXTREMELY FINE. A SUPERB EXAMPLE OF THE 15-CENT 1875 CONTINENTAL BANK NOTE COMPANY SPECIAL PRINTING. ONE OF THE FINEST EXTANT.

Our census records for Scott 174 contain 39 certified examples. Of these, an overwhelming majority have the perforations scissors-separated on at least one side. Only five or six have intact perforations, and of those perhaps half are faulty. This sound and centered example, with intact perforations is a true condition rarity and one of the finest extant.

2809 og Image30c Greenish Black, Special Printing (176). Without gum as issued, beautiful deep shade, scissors-separated as almost always leaving virtually full perforations on three sides

EXTREMELY FINE. A MARVELOUS EXAMPLE OF 30-CENT 1875 CONTINENTAL SPECIAL PRINTING -- ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT OF THE HARD PAPER SPECIAL PRINTINGS TO OBTAIN IN CHOICE CONDITION.

Many examples of the Continental Bank Note special printings were separated by scissors, and so are often found with perforations partly missing or entirely trimmed away. A review of our records and those of The Philatelic Foundation found 52 certified copies. Of these, only three or four have perforations on all four sides. The stamp offered here, with full perforations on three sides and a balanced margin at bottom, is a condition rarity.
