Brookman notes that for the 15c 1894-95 Bureau Issues, the circle around the numeral at lower left does not impinge on the oval, as is the case with the 15c 1890 Issue (Scott 227). This issue was made from an altered die where more work was done than just adding the triangles at top.

With 1999 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98; SMQ $2,900.00). This is the highest grade awarded to date and the only example to achieve this grade.
