VERY FINE EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT 1875 CONTINENTAL SPECIAL PRINTING. LESS THAN 40 ARE BELIEVED TO EXIST.

Our recently updated census records for Scott 172 contain 36 copies that have been certified as genuine by the Philatelic Foundation. A majority of these have been scissors-separated into the perforations on at least one side. Of the eleven copies with full perforations, most have either pulled perforations or are not well-centered.

Ex "Country Gentleman" and Chapin. With 1973 and 2003 P.F. certificates
