Description

    Milton 2E50F.2 50¢ Second Issue Essay Cut Block of Four Extremely Fine. These were lot 316 in Part XIX of the Ford Collection. They are uniface with the standard 50¢ face design minus the bronze oval. They have been rubber stamped "SPECIMEN" in purple ink and they have two half moon cancels. Two of these pieces were bronzed with the words "SECOND," with one note containing the "SEC" and the other note, "ND," with the "O" shared between the two. The other two notes were bronzed "BALTIMORE, MD," with the "O" being the shared letter between this pair. They share a history with the previous lot and hopefully will be kept together. The condition again is as-made with light surface wrinkling.
