8c Olive Bister, Perf 10 at Top, Bright color, choice centering for this difficult issue, neat strike of New Haven Conn. registry oval
Our comprehensive unpublished census of Scott 508c, which encompasses all of the records of the Philatelic Foundation plus our search of auction catalogues, contains only sixteen copies of this rarity. Of these, nine are sound or potentially sound (four of these have very low certificate numbers and need to be examined for condition). Of the sixteen, nine have precancels.
