VERY FINE COMPLETE 49c BOOKLET OF THE 2c TYPE IV. ONE OF THE RARITIES OF BOOKLET PANE COLLECTING AND THE FIRST WE HAVE OFFERED SINCE KEEPING COMPUTERIZED RECORDS.

Other than that we have not offered any of No. BK3 either with or without the Specimen overprint since we began keeping computerized records more than 20 years ago, or in any Rarities of the World sales since 1964. There were none in the Bush, Silverman, Floyd or Hertzka collections either.
