    Fr. 1226 3¢ Third Issue Extremely Fine "Missing Pearl Variety".
    This light curtain 3¢ note is Milton #3R3.1c, the "Missing Pearl" variety. Below Washington's face, is a diamond that normally has 2 small beads or "pearls" under it. On 2 of the thirty-three plates the notes used to print these notes, these "pearls" are missing with only about half of the top one showing. The note has a vertical fold on the left side and tight left and bottom margins. A very nice example of this rarer variety.
