VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN ATTRACTIVE EXAMPLE OF THE 1878 ONE-EIGHTH BARREL ISSUE ON GREEN SILK PAPER. VERY FEW ARE KNOWN.
The Priester census records a total of 14 of this issue. We have offered only one other since keeping computerized records, which was badly damaged. The example offered here was used at the C.

His brewery burned down three times, prompting him to build both a fireproof brewery and mansion in 1894.
