  • According to an article in the 8/3/1998 Linn’s, this copy was a “recent” discovery by a Texas dealer, John Murray. It was in a large lot of pages of U.S. issues that had been torn from an album of stamps collected in France by several generations of the same family. The U.S. pages had been part of a larger group sold as one lot. After Murray made his discovery, he sent the stamp for certification by the PF and PSE.
