Sc.296a, 1901 2c. Train with center inverted FORGERY, on a cover front sent from Jefferson to Mexico on 25/OC/1902. These examples with center inverted come from a special printing and show a lighter carmine shade, all the known genuine examples are used in Brooklyn, NY. It is a very good forgery, difficult to detect for the untrained eye, and very interesting for the specialist!
