Mint card, without printed address, clear impression, negligible light corner crease at bottom left

VERY FINE EXAMPLE OF THE ONE-CENT BLACK FULL-FACE McKINLEY POSTAL CARD. EXTREMELY RARE WITHOUT THE PRINTED ADDRESS.

As an indication of rarity, the Scott Catalogue prices the card without printed address at $16,000.00, versus $3,000.00 with the printed address. The entire stock of 500 cards was inadvertently sent from Washington to Booth, Dailey & Ivins in New York where they were shortly thereafter pre-printed with their address and garbage dumping information on the back to be filled out by the tug captain. As a result of the printing there remained no mint cards for collectors. This "Unmarked Specimen" long ago became accepted as a full mint card in order to allow collectors to have a complete unused collection. Albert Daggett, the contractor for the printing of the Full Face card, was never able to satisfy the Post Office in Washington due to sub-standard quality of his productions. All submitted samples were rejected and as a result the entire stock of 1,625,000 cards was ordered destroyed by the PMG on April 29, 1902.

With 1992 A.P.S. certificate
