Die proof in black for 4 RBS on thin ivory paper without wmk. with entire black surface of the die 60 x 41 mm. Uncertain year of origin but presumably before 1885 because the die was not available at the time to make the reprints and the Buntzen essay had to be modified for that purpose. B&N No. 2-DP(2c). Three copies recorded in private hands. Ex. Schmidt-Andersen and Lorentzen.
