Sale Number 865, Lot Number 53, Essays and Proofs2c Bronze & Violet, Re-Use Prevention Essay (79-E2b), 2c Bronze & Violet, Re-Use Prevention Essay (79-E2b)2c Bronze & Violet, Re-Use Prevention Essay (79-E2b). U.S. 10mm high, original gum, h.r., part of design punched out

VERY FINE AND EXTREMELY RARE. ONLY A VERY FEW OF THESE RE-USE PREVENTION ESSAYS ARE KNOWN.

Unlike some other essays of this type which are folded designs, this re-use essay was pierced with "S"-shaped cuts, with the numeral cut out. This made the stamp too fragile, preventing its reuse. Ex Finkelburg
