Sale 946, Lot 1096, 1916-17 Issues (Scott 462-480)30c Orange Red, Perf 10 (476A). Mint N.H., Position 71 from sheet with plate no. 6111, natural s.e. at left, wonderfully fresh with deep intense color on bright white paper, remarkably well-centered as the vast majority of stamps from the sheet are off-centered (touching to cut in)

FRESH AND VERY FINE EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 30-CENT PERF 10 WASHINGTON-FRANKLIN ON UNWATERMARKED PAPER.

Despite the recent P.S.E. claim that a watermark has been "discovered" on one stamp from one of the 476A panes, the vestige of a watermark on the dandy roll used to make unwatermarked paper has been known to philatelists since 1918. The unwatermarked paper supplied to the Bureau for printings of sheets that were perforated gauge 10 and 11 is known to have had "ghost" watermarks where the brass pieces were removed. We currently side with the group of philatelists who believe that the 30c Perf 10 Unwatermarked, Scott 476A, was legitimately issued.

With 1984 P.F. certificate
