1909-1911 T206 Hal Chase Printing Error

Starting Bid - $100.00, Sold For - $2,350.00

Extremely unusual and almost certainly unique T206 printing error card features Hal Chase. This printing error has escaped almost all color processes of the printing process, while at the same time keeping the ink processes that define Chase's image. The image of Chase appears in brown-and-white and gray, with a completely white background (as opposed to a pink background as issued). The reverse is a complete final process Sweet Caporal (350-460 series) back. This is a fascinating, and very striking, printing error from the T206 set. We believe this card was a printer’s scrap and was never actually issued. It was likely hand-cut and saved from the trash by the printer or someone who worked for the printer. The card has a single crease on the left side of the card, and otherwise has a very clean and sharp overall Ex-Mt appearance. The Chase portrait is a particularly well known card in the T206 set, making this an all the more interesting and memorable T206 printing error card. Reserve $100. Estimate $200/$400. SOLD FOR $2,350.00
