    Only 177 Issued in 1875

    10¢ Black (O51S-D), unused, well centered within large to huge margins, bright and fresh, without gum as issued, Very Fine and scarce; with only 177 issued this is well undervalued by Scott.

    Scott $900

    Expertization: 2010 PF Certificate

    Though overprinted "Specimen" these are Special Printings made in 1875 at the time the other Reprints, Re-Issues, and Special Printings were printed. They are ungummed and as noted by Scott, not considered to be in the same category as the stamps listed in the Specimen section of the catalog.
