    Description

    Fr. 198 $50 1863 Interest Bearing Face Proof PCGS Choice New 63. This is a plate letter D proof impression of the face of this rare issue that bears an elaborate latticework olive-green overprint and is also stamped "SPECIMEN" at right. Only three fully issued examples of this number are documented, making this proof that much more desirable. There are four oblong punch-out cancels through the Treasury signatures, plus three pie-slice shaped cancellations at center. In U.S. Essay, Proof and Specimen Notes by Gene Hessler there is not a description of a proof of this design with a full overprint. As with almost all Federal proofs, this note is excessively rare and undervalued, and a great opportunity for the astute collector.
