VERY FINE APPEARING EXAMPLE OF THE RARE $1.90 IMPERFORATE FOREIGN EXCHANGE FIRST ISSUE REVENUE.
It is believed that of the 9,000 examples originally issued imperforate, 312 were returned for perforating. It is not known how many were used. A review using Power Search found a dozen or so unduplicated copies. No multiples are known.
FINE AND RARE USE OF THE 50-CENT SECOND ISSUE INVERT ON A TURNED PROMISSORY NOTE, WHICH WAS USED A SECOND TIME THE FOLLOWING YEAR.
Any use of Revenue inverts on original documents is desirable. This example, which was turned and used a second time with a normal stamp is particularly fascinating.
FINE APPEARING EXAMPLE OF THE SCARCE ONE-CENT PROPRIETARY INVERT ON VIOLET PAPER. ONLY 24 EXAMPLES ARE RECORDED, MOST OF WHICH ARE FAULTY.
In his privately published census, Larry Lyons records 23 examples of this invert error, most of which have thins or creases, or are off center. We offered one additional copy in our 2006 Tolman sale, bringing the total to 24. Of these, at least sixteen have faults.
