FROM DR MIGLIAVACCA'S CERTIFICATE -- KINGDOM OF SARDINIA — Third Issue, 1854 — Francesco Matraire's embossing essay (second setting, first printing) of the 5 cent denomination, blue-green, on thin, ungummed paper, [Sassone 7, Essay. Cardillo S. 8a]; unusually extra wide margins, almost all known specimens of this essay have poor to average margins. Verso shows Dr. Chiavarello's signature. I have examined the above-described essay — which is photographically reproduced* here: in my opinion this rare essay is in superb condition, possibly the best known specimen of its type, with extraordinary margins, and truly sharp embossing. It is genuine in all respects. I signed the verso of this essay with my initials - “GM” - in pencil———
