FINE. THIS IS THE ONLY REPORTED PLATE NUMBER MULTIPLE OF THE 1879 ONE-CENT AGRICULTURE AMERICAN BANK NOTE COMPANY PRINTING ON SOFT PAPER.

The Agriculture Officials were printed from sheets of 100 consisting of one pane. In December 1878 Continental merged with American Bank Note Company, which assumed production for United States stamps early in 1879, including the Officials. As with the regular Bank Note issues, the Officials printed by American can be distinguished by the use of soft, porous paper. The Durland catalogue lists only two recorded plate number singles, one each from the top and bottom of the sheet, and only this plate number multiple.

Ex Markovits. Scott Retail as singles with no premium for the plate number
