Paraguay 1900 40c Seal Of The Treasury Sunken Die Proof. Scott Unlisted

$290.00

| /

At first glance this would appear to be the die proof for either Scott 59 (1901) or 67 (1901-02) but note the numerals are in the style of the 1900 issue. The die was prepared for a 40c value in 1900 but never issued. Engraved by the South American Banknote Company, printed on glossy paper and die sunk onto beige stock card. Tape adhesion to reverse. Note that 'die proofs' on thin paper exist for this issue but are suspected reprints.
