Personally not much. A couple of the stamps have faults that I couldn't look past especially when it comes to pulled perfs. But ,that's just one of my criteria. The Specimen stamp isn't scarce so plenty available.

All are average at best. Pulled, short and blunted perf's along with poor centering. 15-20% of Cat would be my top

There were 20,234 Agriculture Special Printings sold. 10,000 on thin hard white paper, 10,000 on Horizontally ribbed paper, both printed in 1875 by Continental. On 31 Dec 1883, American BNC printed another 5000 of soft paper, only 234 of those were sold.

as Officials go, these are better centered than typical (they are often poor)
