I have two questions regarding this variety. First to canvas members to see who has this stamp in their collection, I would like to try to establish a census. Cockrill stated only two are known but this is incorrect. Korn has two, one on cover and one I sent him from the Varaschini collection. Chlanda has an additional three I believe. And I have one in my possession. Secondly, does anyone have any info regarding the reason the large "2" was applied? Cockrill stated the "2" was used to indicate the value on the top sheet of a bundle of sheets and was applied at the time of emergency printing. I am not sure that this is accurate but I have no other explanation. All known stamps are used, no mint are recorded. I have seen Monrovia and German Seepost cancels.
