Scott #22 (but design similar to #29-30) Essay in Blue on medium-thick, ungummed, unwatermarked, very white, 37 x 51 mm paper. The 1 and 5 Cent Arms stamps were the first issued and have only TWO rings around the large numbers; the later-issued 2 and 8 Cent stamps have THREE rings around the large numbers. It is believed that this essay was made from an altered 5 Cent die in the early stages of preparation for the 2 and 8 Cent designs. Not listed by AFA 2002 Specialized, but is listed and described, but not valued, in DWI Mails. A stunning and important essay of considerable rarity.
