2c Pale Red Brown, Special Printing (211B).
Bright shade, partial strike of blue cancel
at right, the "Th" of "Third Assistant P.M.G. P.O.D. May 23 '85" cancel is visible, Fine and very rare, a top right corner margin vertical pair is known with the same cancel, this stamp adjoined that pair (the pair realized $8,000 hammer in a 2010 Spink Shreves auction), this favor cancel is the only way to collect this issue in used condition since it cannot be distinguished from the normal printing without the presence of gum, with 1958 A.P.S. and 1974 P.F. certificates, Scott Catalogue does not list this in used condition
