    Usage as newspaper revenue stamps 1852: 5 c. black on green in a vert. pair, a superb multiple in vivid colour and with regular large margins all round, tied by barred obliterator to first page of 'GAZZETTA DI PARMA' newspaper of November 19, 1857. An extremely rare usage of Modena defintives instead of the 'Bollo Gazzette' revenues, Sassone lists only three usages, this item being the fourth and the only with a pair of the 5 c. green. A splendid item for a very advanced collection of Modena or classic Italy. Cert. Sorani (2014), Colla (2015) Sassone = € 75'000 for a 10 c. stamp on journal.
