    Milton 3E25F.2a 25¢ Third Issue PCGS Choice About New 58PPQ.
    This and the next note are the 25¢ examples of the Third Issue experimental notes. This example is printed on extremely heavy fiber paper with its bold embossing plainly evident on the back. It has the plate position indicator "a" on the left lower side of the face, and the blue SPECIMEN is oriented diagonally across the face. It also appears to have a partial plate number in the upper right corner of the face. No examples were in the Ford/Boyd collection. It is one of only three known examples, one of which is permanently ensconced in the Smithsonian's Crofoot collection.
