Farley gifted sheets of the National Parks and other issues, in imperforate form without gum, to several dignitaries, including President Roosevelt, the uproar this caused among collectors led to the mass printing of the imperforate sheets, now known as "Farley's Follies", this piece is not the Scott listed imperforate Farley No. 760, but rather a variety of the perforated issue No. 744, the presence of the Roosevelt signature (or one of the other recipients) is the only way to verify that these are the unissued variety
