EXTREMELY FINE. THIS IS WITHOUT QUESTION ONE OF THE FINEST KNOWN EXAMPLES OF THE RARE 4-CENT 1883 AMERICAN BANK NOTE COMPANY SPECIAL PRINTING. ONLY 26 ARE RECORDED IN OUR CENSUS.

Our census of the 4c 1883 Special Printing, available at https://siegelauctions.com/census/us/scott/211D , contains 26 stamps offered as No. 211D, of which 25 have been certified by The Philatelic Foundation. Post Office Department records indicate that only 26 were sold. Of the known copies, at least five have small faults. Very few are as well centered as the example offered here.
