National Bank Note Co., 3c Rose, Progressive Die Essay on India (65-E16, unlisted).
Showing the complete design as on the issued stamp except lacking the outer balls around the four corners
(possibly other minor design differences as well), large margins to full at bottom, small "f" handstamp on back, Very Fine, this is the discovery example of this progressive die proof that represents an incomplete version of the 3c Second Design -- unlisted in Scott, though it would logically fall immediately after the finished First Design, and therefore we are calling it 65-E16
