Dickinson 72A, Norweb -.

Good Fine and attractive.  Extremely rare.

This variety (first published by William Gilbert in 1917) has a reverse die which differs from Cambridge 72.  The only change in lettering is that the initial of the issuer's wife is I instead of E.  It is very much rarer than the other.
