EXTREMELY FINE. THE ONE-CENT CONTINENTAL BANK NOTE COMPANY SPECIAL PRINTING IS ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT VALUES OF THE SERIES TO OBTAIN WITH SUCH WIDE MARGINS.

Our recently updated census records for Scott 167 contains 44 certified examples. Of these, less than ten have perforations all around (including two with either imprint or plate no. at bottom). Less than two of these are sound and centered, and none have margins approaching the size of the example offered here.

Unpublished Census No. 167-UNC-35. Ex Chapin. With 1967 and 2003 P.F. certificates.
