EXTREMELY FINE. A REMARKABLE ERROR ON THE 24-CENT "WASHINGTON CROSSING THE DELAWARE" SOUVENIR SHEET, WITH THE PERFORATIONS INVERTED AND REVERSED AND WITH ONE POSITION MISSING TEXT WHERE PERFORATIONS SHOULD HAVE BEEN.

It is believed only two examples of this dramatic error exist. Scott Retail with no premium for the missing text
