VERY FINE APPEARING EXAMPLE OF THE SCARCE $5.00 PROPRIETARY ON VIOLET PAPER.
Examples of the $5.00 Proprietary Issue almost invariably have faults, due to the stamp's large size and the nature of its use. The Kingsley book contains a table showing 2,109 stamps ordered and he records only 119 copies extant
EXTREMELY FINE APPEARING EXAMPLE OF THE $100.00 GREEN SERIES 1940 SILVER TAX ISSUE HANDSTAMPED IN BLUE. ONLY 13 ARE BELIEVED TO EXIST.
Eric Jackson records a total of 13 used copies of this issue. Of these at least six have faults and several are centered to the bottom. This is easily one of the best-centered examples in that population.
