    Possibly Unique Off-Color Proof

    Milton 2E25R.4 25¢ Second Issue PMG Choice Uncirculated 63.
    Unlisted in Milton, the number on the holder has built on the existing system and added the ".4." It's referred to as an Essay on the holder, although Essay and Proof have started to be used interchangeably. The note is printed in black, and it has all the features of the finished-plate 25¢ Second Issue. It lacks the bronze, and is printed on thin, soft paper which is glued to card. The print quality is incredible, leaving this cataloger inclined to refer to this as a Proof. We can find no previous record of this. Carmine purchased it from Rob Kravitz, who also referred to it as "Unique - no history, not seen before."
