VERY FINE. A SCARCE CENTERED ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1895 8-CENT BUREAU ISSUE WITH "USIR" WATERMARK.

The "USIR" (United States Internal Revenue) watermark error occurred when a supply of paper reserved for revenue stamp production was used for printing the 6c and 8c postage stamps. There are approximately 75 known of the 8c with a bit more than ten unused, but many are either off-center or have flaws.
