Sale 804, Lot 436, 1893 Columbian Issue4c Columbian, Error of Color (233a). Original gum which is very slightly disturbed, lightly hinged, the more intense of the two error shades, fresh and bright paper, well-centered with enormously wide margins

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. ONE OF THE FINEST EXAMPLES OF THE RARE 4-CENT COLUMBIAN ERROR OF COLOR. A PHENOMENAL STAMP.

The 4c Columbian color error was caused by the use of a wrong batch of ink. It has been noted in the past that the color matches that of the 1c, but in fact the true color error is an even darker shade.

Accompanied by a Mint N.H. Gem normal stamp for comparison. With 1984 P.F. certificate
