Position 31 with left selvage, single hinge mark, well-balanced margins

EXTREMELY FINE EXAMPLE OF THE THATCHER FERRY BRIDGE ERROR. ONLY ONE PANE OF 50 WAS EVER ISSUED.

According to Canal Zone Stamps, one sheet, consisting of four panes of 50, was printed. Three panes were caught by postal authorities, while the fourth pane of 50 was sent to H. E. Harris & Co. as part of a larger order from the Canal Zone Philatelic Agency. At the same time this error was printed, the U.S. had issued the Dag Hammarskjold error in huge quantities. The Canal Zone authorities made plans to do the same, but were successfully sued by H. E. Harris, and the larger printing never took place. Two of the three other panes were laminated and presented to the National Postal Museum. The third was destroyed. The one pane available was broken up in 1969.

FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE COMMERICIALLY USED 1884 10-CENT BLACK WITH BLUE INSIDE ENTIRE. THIS IS THE EARLIEST KNOWN USE OF THE THREE OR FOUR RECORDED.

Attesting to its true rarity, a used example of this 10c Blue Inside Entire was missing from some of the most advanced collections of Hawaii formed including those of the Honolulu Advertiser, Pietsch, Aall, Twigg-Smith, Golden and others. The Gregory Post Office in Paradise website records the previously known EDU as September 1, 1886 -- this example predates that cover by almost two years. A census kept by Michael Beck records three confirmed examples plus an example dated September 1, 1886, but it is not known if it is an entire or a cut square.
