    Description

    Milton 2E5F.3a 5¢ Second Issue Essay Choice New. Printed on thick yellow paper (light cardboard) from the finished 5¢ face plate. The quality of the engraving is exceptional. This note was apparently printed using a brand-new plate under particularly heavy pressure, as the print quality is remarkable and the embossing clearly penetrates through to the back of the heavy paper. Only two examples are known, this one, which Tom O'Mara acquired from the Doug Hales Collection, and the other, lot 892 from our January 1997 Sale.
