FINE-VERY FINE. AN EXTREMELY RARE PART IMPRINT AND PLATE NUMBER MULTIPLE OF THE 2-CENT STATE DEPARTMENT SPECIAL PRINTING. ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE SHOWING THE MAJOR DOUBLE TRANSFER IN POSITION 98.
All the State Department issues below the dollar denominations were printed from sheets of 100 stamps. Position 98 on the 2c plate contains one of the most pronounced double transfers of any Official issue. Combining it with a multiple which also shows the part imprint and plate number makes this one of the most outstanding Official Special Printing items extant.
