EXTREMELY FINE. WITHOUT QUESTION ONE OF THE THREE OR FOUR FINEST OF THE 18 RECORDED COPIES OF THE 5-CENT 1880 AMERICAN BANK NOTE COMPANY SOFT-PAPER SPECIAL PRINTING.

The 5c 1880 Special Printing on soft paper is one of the most elusive of the Bank Note Special printings. Our census of Scott 204 (available at http://siegelauctions.com/enc/census/204.pdf) records only 18 copies of this stamp, including one example in the Miller collection at The New York Public Library. About one-third of the known stamps have minor faults. Of the dozen sound examples available to collectors, this stamp places among the top three or four in terms of centering and margins. It was Alfred H. Caspary's choice for his legendary collection, and over the years this stamp has stood the test of time as condition standards have become more rigorous. We anticipate a record realization when this magnificent 5c Taylor Special Printing is offered in the Hansen sale.

Census No. 204-UNC-03. Ex Caspary, Ambassador Collection, Cole, Greenblatt, Weisman and Ballman. With 1956, 1988, 2002 and 2008 P.F. certificates, as well as 1991 P.S.E. certificate
