    Fr. 1243SP Milton 1DP10F.1 10¢ First Issue Trial Color Die Proof Face PMG Choice About Unc 58 EPQ. This note is a uniface proof printing on soft white paper. This unique note traces its origins to a 1904 Chapman Sale, no other examples having been seen before or since. It's immediately evident that you are not looking at just another Specimen note. The impression is clearly from a brand-new plate, as the engraving is incredibly sharp and the embossing strikingly obvious. Most importantly, it is printed in black rather than the usual green. When we last sold this, it was part of Lot 12595 in our September 2007 Mayer sale. The back is no longer present, but this is by far the more important half of the pair, as it is an off-color die proof. The back of the pair was printed in its normal black.
