Sale 1062, Lot 540, 1909 Bluish Paper Issue (Scott 357-366)4c Orange Brown, Bluish (360). Selvage at bottom, intense shade on blued paper, attractive margins and centering

VERY FINE EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 4-CENT ON BLUISH PAPER.

According to Johl (Vol. 1, page 175), the only source of the 4c and 8c Bluish stamps was the archives of the Post Office Department. Approximately 80 of each were traded for rare stamps missing from the archives. Given the failed experimental nature of the paper mixture, it is no surprise that virtually all copies are off center to some extent.

Small blue backstamp and signed in pencil "RHW Co" (Raymond H. Weill). With 1970 and 1992 P.F. certificates
