CSA Catalog 6-U1-a, Ward (or Philadelphia) Private Printing made from authentic De La Rue printing plate captured from blockade runner Bermuda and now on display in the Gross Gallery of the Smithsonian National Postal Museum. Printed in both black and a deceptive blue and sheets were ungummed. The stamp has a dull flat appearance. The outer frame line is slighter thicker than the genuine and the letters are not as thick. On most examples, Davis’ hair blends into the background. $5.
