    Fr. 1226 3¢ Third Issue Inverted Back PCGS Very Fine 25.
    Three Cent Inverts are very rare. When Milt Friedberg's Encyclopedia was printed, only four examples were known, and we believe one or two have surfaced in the last quarter century. In the 1924 Valentine book, the author claims that the 3¢ Inverts are from plate #2, a misconception apparently created as the plate number on that plate is inverted. The centering is lacking, but still a nice representative for the issue. This newly discovered example will be a welcome addition to the next collection it enters.
