EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS IS WITHOUT QUESTION THE FINEST EXAMPLE OF THE 1875 2-CENT CONTINENTAL BANK NOTE COMPANY SPECIAL PRINTING IN EXISTENCE. A PHENOMENAL STAMP IN EVERY RESPECT.

Our recently updated census records for Scott 168 contain only 56 copies certified as genuine. Of these, there are 28 with perforations all around. However, only seven of these are confirmed as sound -- many of the others have not been examined in decades. Of the seven confirmed sound copies, only two have decent centering -- the example offered here and one from our 2007 Rarities sale. A third centered copy needs to be examined for soundness, so at most there are three sound and centered copies with intact perforations.
