    Milton 1E5R.3 5¢ First Issue Proof Printed in Green PMG Choice Uncirculated 63. This piece is unlisted in the Friedberg 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. There is a tiny tear in the India at the lower left, which PMG has noted on the holder. 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 proof printing quality.
