EXTREMELY FINE. ONE OF THE FINEST KNOWN EXAMPLES OF THE RARE 4-CENT 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 six have small faults and several others have not been examined for condition in many years. This sound centered copy is particularly desirable.

Census No. 211D-UNC-24. Ex Caspary, as the top right stamp in the block of four. The block was broken shortly after the 1956 Caspary sale. Ex Clifford Cole and Zoellner. With 1957, 1998 and 2008 P.F. certificates
