Country: SARDINIA
FROM DR MIGLIAVACCA'S CERTIFICATE -- KINGDOM OF SARDINIA — Second Issue, 1853 — Francesco Matraire's embossing and register proof of the 20 cent denomination on thick, gummed, green paper later adopted for the 5 cent [Sassone 5, Proof. Cardillo P. 16]; close margins vertically and sharp embossing typical of these early proofs, original gum. The margin at the bottom is unusually wide. Signed by Dr. Chiavarello on the gummed side. I have examined the above-described proof — which is photographically reproduced* here: in my opinion it is in very fine condition and genuine in all respects, including its gum. I signed the verso of this proof with my initials - “GM” - in pencil——— -- BOTTACCHI'S CERTIFICATE ALSO PROVIDED *** SUPERB QUALITY
