MARIS 80-ff

Rarity: Unique

Variety equivalents: Breen 956

This variety may be a contemporary counterfeit.  Maris assigned the number "80" to this variety, neglecting to assign a letter(s) to the reverse.  In 1925, Guttag applied the next available designation ("ff") to the reverse.

This was the only use of the obverse die.

This was the only use of the reverse die.
