(Sold) # 0215 - T51 CR Unl PF 5 - Missing "of " between States & America - Rarity 13
There is no "of " between States & America. On the condition census, Fricke comments that the engraver forgot to engrave "of ". This note indicates that the missing "of" is actually a plate problem as the bottom left corner of the "o" is there and the surrounding area seems to be plate damaged.
This is the fourth one ever to be found and the first one found in the last 39 years. One is in Thian's album at Duke University. Two others sold in 1979.
This one is VF-cut cancelled and not on the condition census.
39 years is a long time to wait to find another one.
