Sale 914, Lot 730, 1870-88 Bank Note Issues (Scott 156 thru 166)3c Green, Kiss Print nee Double Impression (158 var). Rich color, light strike of cork cancel leaves distinct doubling of design clearly visible, faint diagonal crease not mentioned on accompanying certificate, Fine appearance, a rare example of this variety, with 1978 P.F. certificate describing this as Scott 158j Double Impression, the most recent (2005) certificate describes this as a "kiss" impression and so we must now reclassify it as such, we are somewhat at a loss to understand how kiss prints are created from engraved flat plates, with 1978 and 2005 P.F. certificates
