HISTORY AND COMMENTARY

When the American Bank Note Co. took over Continental in 1879, some of the Continental plates were used before new plates with American imprints were made. The American printings from Continental plates can be distinguished by the soft porous paper and shade. This is one of six top plate blocks of Scott 184 listed in the Chapin census with the old Continental imprint.
