AN OUTSTANDING ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 1893 6¢ BLACK OVERPRINT ERROR. ONLY ONE SHEET OF 50 WAS ISSUED.
Two errors of the 1893 Provisional Government Overprint Issues were made. One sheet of the 10¢ Red Brown, normally overprinted in black, was overprinted in red (Scott 61B) and one sheet of the 6¢ Green, normally overprinted in red, was overprinted in black (Scott 66C). The 6¢ sheet was purchased by Postmaster Jos. M. Oat and sometime around 1901 most of it was sold to dealer J. H. Makins, probably on behalf of Henry J. Crocker. The San Francisco earthquake is said to have destroyed a number of examples of both the overprint errors.
