1854 N-30 R7- F12. Sharpness VF20 with an arc of very fine roughness through stars 5-13, uniform microscopic roughness covering the reverse fields, and a light rim bruise at the D in UNITED. Slightly glossy medium brown and chocolate. The repunching under the 185 is extremely faint but the parallel fine die lines at the wreath over the stem are visible. One of only 13 known of this extremely rare variety, a brief marriage that combines the late state of the N-21 obverse with the early state of the N-23 reverse. All known examples display identical die states. DWH #1928.
Estimated Value $500-UP.
