Well, at least I got to have a haircut in the Penny Lane barber shop.

According to my ancient (2011) Scott Specialized Catalogue, there are three varieties of this two-cent Jefferson postal card:

> UX30 with no revaluing overprint
> UX31 with "1 CENT" overprinted on one line
> and UX33 with its "1 CENT" overprint stacked on two lines.

So what the heck is this one, with just the numeral "1"? (Close-up image is enhanced to show detail.)

It appears that underneath the "1" is "cents", just poorly struck.

Harvey,

I think you're right. That's what I thought when I saw my enlarged image, but when I looked at it "in person" again, I couldn't see it. The scanner light must be just the right temperature to bring out the CENTS. I tried shining UV on it and I do see the ink traces, sort of.

So, UX33 is is. Thanks!
