VERY FINE AND CHOICE. AN EXTREMELY RARE SOUND AND CENTERED USED EXAMPLE OF THE 2-CENT BLACK JACK RE-ISSUE. ONLY 24 USED EXAMPLES ARE CONTAINED IN OUR CENSUS AND THE EXAMPLE OFFERED HERE IS UNQUESTIONABLY ONE OF THE FINEST.

Our unpublished census of Scott 103 used contains 24 copies. Of these, approximately 13 are sound. However, of these only five or six have centering we would consider Very Fine, and several have not been examined in decades and may in fact not be sound. Therefore, the example offered here is one of the finest in existence.

With 2011 P.S.E. certificate (VF 80; SMQ $24,000.00)
