VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A SCARCE SET OF IMPERFORATE IMPRINT AND PLATE NUMBER STRIPS OF FIVE OF THE 1895 WATERMARKED BUREAU ISSUE, WHICH IS COMPLETE TO THE 5-CENT VALUE.

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A SCARCE ORIGINAL-GUM PAIR OF THE 1895 8-CENT WATERMARKED BUREAU ISSUE WITH "USIR" WATERMARK.
Our census of Scott 272a records only 66 copies, most of which were used. The variety was created when the stock of paper intended for use on revenue stamps was inadvertently used for regular-issue stamps. Scott Retail as single watermark error
VERY FINE-EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. A SCARCE IMPRINT BLOCK OF THE $1.00 TYPE I WATERMARKED BUREAU ISSUE.
This block comes from the fifteen Plate 76 rows that produced only Type I stamps.

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. THE RIGHT STAMP HAS EXTREMELY FINE CENTERING. A SCARCE ORIGINAL-GUM IMPRINT AND PLATE NUMBER STRIP OF THREE OF THE 1895 WATERMARKED $5.00 BUREAU ISSUE.
In our opinion, the Scott values for Bureau plate multiples do not reflect their true rarity.
EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THE 1895 BUREAU DOLLAR VALUES ARE NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND IN THIS ULTRA-HIGH GRADE, ESPECIALLY WITH A LIGHT CANCELLATION.
With 2006 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98; SMQ $5,300.00)
