Some examples, both with and without the overprint, were given away by Third Asst. Postmaster General Edwin C. Madden. When postal authorities learned of the practice, they destroyed 194 copies and put one pane of 100 into the official archives. At a later date, 97 of these were traded for rarities missing from the archives. Scott notes that "Almost all unused examples of No. 296a have partial or disturbed gum. Values are for examples with full original gum that is slightly disturbed")
