VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE IMPERFORATE PAIR OF THE 1895 SPECIAL DELIVERY ISSUE.

Using the logic behind including No. E3 as a part of the Columbian issues, one can argue Nos. E4 and E5 are part of the 1894 and 1895 Bureau issues. Perhaps this is why Nos. E4 and E5 are the only Special Delivery issues found imperforate. However, unlike its regular-issue counterparts, which exist in abundant quantities, Nos. E4a and E5a are very rare. We have offered only two others since our 1992 Rarities sale, both of which had small faults.
