Middlesex-Spence’s, D&H-831a, W-8994 variety.
Always a popular macabre issue on our list, but this is the first example of this type we’ve had in quite some time.
With Thomas Paine hanging from a gibbet surrounded by END OF PAIN on one side, and the MAY THE KNAVE OF JACOBIN CLUBS NEVER GET A TRICK on the other.
That reverse inscription plays on the double meaning of Knave for a rogue and a Jack in a deck of cards (a reference to the Jacobin Club, a far-left political movement at the time of the French Revolution, though the term came to refer to all supporters of revolutionary opinions).
And this is a neat, all original RB Gem Unc. with a super sharp strike.
