    Milton 4S15R.1 15¢ Fourth Issue Proof PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ.
    The Milt Friedberg sale had a block of nine of these Fourth Issue Fifteen Cent Backs. They were subsequently cut into singles and a pair or two. The O'Mara example was the upper-right subject from the block of nine. It had an edge tear and graded Choice About New. The block had five notes that could have been cut to high grade. This is one of them. The first subject from the second line, the registration mark at the very left edge of this beautiful Proof photo-matches to the Friedberg block. The block was plated in the 1978 Friedberg encyclopedia on page 127. It's printed on a soft, white bond very similar to the proofing papers used on the earlier issues. The combination of rarity and grade will make this a very sought-after lot. PMG has mistaken this 15¢ Fourth Issue Proof back for a Third Issue Grant-Sherman Specimen back which it is not. They will reholder it correctly at no charge for the new owner. It has no Friedberg number, and is correctly identified by either its Milton number or "Fourth Issue Proof Back." The number assigned is that of a Third Issue Narrow Margin Specimen.
