    Green Five Cent Clark Back on Bristol Board

    Milton 3E5R.1a 5¢ Third Issue Bristol Board Proof PMG Uncirculated 62.
    Bristol Board Proofs are among the most popular and rarest of the Fractional Currency Specialty Pieces. This Green Back is even more desirable as it has the partial plate number 60 in its lower left corner. It has a razor sharp impression, and was printed using extremely heavy pressure. These Bristol Board Proofs were printed directly on the soft, thick card stock with no intervening India paper. In spite of the very thick stock, the plate pressure was sufficient to emboss it through to the back. There are perhaps four of these Green Back Clark Bristol Boards in existence. When we last sold this piece in January of 2010, it realized $1725.
