However, the existence of an unwatermarked card postmarked June 4, 1873 means that it is likely that some of the unwatermarked normal color proofs produced in early April, prior to the paper being calendered for the large watermark dandy roll, were accidentally distributed into postal channels and used much like the Full Face McKinley cards would be 29 years later.-+ (Image 1) (Image 2)
