The Paquet reverse design with tall letters. About a dozen are known.



This reverse was also used in the following years:

1858 on J221/P264.

1864 on J384-5/P452-3.

1865 on J423-4/P495-6.

The latter two years are likely fantasy pieces deliberately made for sale to collectors circa 1868 to the early 1870s.
