337 og image#180, 2c Carmine vermilion special printing, without gum as issued, marvelously well centered within large margins which are most uncharacteristic of this, strikingly intense color in a deep "fiery" shade, strong highly detailed impression on incredibly fresh paper, its perforations are completely intact and not scissor separated as found on so many of the Hard Paper Special Printings, very fine and exceedingly choice. A highly select example of this great United States rarity. There are only 24 examples recorded, one of which is housed in the New York Public Library's collection. Of the known examples, the copy offered here from the Hinrichs collection ranks not only among the finest available, but it is also one of the finest copies to come on the market in several years - eclipsing the examples found in such luminary collections as those formed by Messrs. Zoellner, Golin, Lyons, Floyd and Lessin. An exciting opportunity to acquire one of the premier examples of this important rarity. Accompanied by 1992 PSE and 1993 PF certificates. (Image) 40,000.00
