EXTREMELY FINE. THIS IS WITHOUT QUESTION THE FINEST ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE $6.00 1894 UNWATERMARKED BUREAU ISSUE, PR101, IN EXISTENCE. ONE OF THE
HIGHLIGHTS OF THE INMAN NEWSPAPERS AND PERIODICALS COLLECTION.
Our recently updated census of PR101, available at http://siegelauctions.com/dynamic/census/PR101/PR101.pdf , contains fifteen unused and one used copy of this rarity. The ensuing years have not been kind to these stamps. Only six have original gum and of these only one other is
