Lot Sym. Lot Description  
2219   Image1933, Ty. B Surcharge on 5bbl. Black on Blue, Beer (REA169; Priester 197c). Priester Type 220 surcharge, large margins, center cut out, "IND BR'S Inc., 1.17.36" perforated cancel, light horizontal and vertical creases

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE AND DESIRABLE EXAMPLE OF THE 5-BARREL BLACK 1933 ISSUE WITH THE TYPE B SURCHARGE.

The Priester (and therefore Scott) listing for this issue can be a little confusing. Priester lists the 5bbl. and 25bbl. three ways, with and without the Type 220 surcharge: 1) with cut-out center, no Priester number, no price and no census listing, 2) Uncut, Priester No. 197ca, no price and no census listing, and 3) Center cut-out only, Priester No. 197cb, one recorded. The last listing suggests it would just be the center cutout with a part of the surcharge, which is how the 25bbl. is known (see Siegel Sale 1067, lot 666), and one in such a state does indeed exist. The stamp offered here, with cut-out center, would appear to be the first listing and therefore unknown to Priester. However, it is not unique, as a few others have reached the market over the past decade or so.

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 1933 SECOND ISSUE ONE-HOGSHEAD BLACK, OF WHICH ONLY FIVE ARE KNOWN.

The earliest reported use of any unsurcharged denomination is December 6, 1933, just two days prior to the date this stamp was used. It is believed that there are two additional copies outside of the Priester census, for a total of five known examples of this rarity.
