    Description

    Milton 1E5R.3 5¢ First Issue Proof Printed in Green Gem New. This piece is unlisted in the Encyclopedia, as its existence was not even suspected until it surfaced in the late 1980's. This note, which is unique to our best knowledge, is printed in green on thin India paper, which is mounted to pure white board. The India paper is trimmed around the design in an octagonal shape. Off-color First Issue Proofs are extreme rarities, with only a few known for all denominations combined. The beauty of this bright green piece is additionally enhanced by its razor-sharp printing quality.
