    Milton 2E50FR.2 50¢ Second Issue Experimental with Brown Back and Blank Shield PMG Choice Uncirculated 63 EPQ. This experimental has a brown back and it is without the printing of the interior part of the shield. It also has a bronze "50" surcharge printed on the face that is of the size that is found on the back of Second Issue notes. Also, the date of "March 21, 1863" is bronzed on the face. This number is found with four different back colors, purple, brown, carmine, and green. These colors are the colors that were used for the backs of the Second Issue notes. This experimental is ex-Ford and Boyd with the Valentine number of "40A" in pencil on the back plus the usual punch cancels and the rubber stamped "SPECIMEN." This brown back experimental is also similar to the other brown back example of this number in the auction, except it does not have the hand-written word of "Imperfect" in the blank shield. This note is also ex-Ford, FCC Boyd. The Milton number is incorrect on the holder.
