EXTREMELY FINE. AN EXTRAORDINARY MINT N.H. 1869 5-FRANC NAPOLEON.

The 5-Franc Napoleon is the most popular classic stamp of France. Due to it's larger size, both unused and used copies are usually encountered with faults, and unused copies often lack all or most of the original gum. To find an example such as this, in Mint Never Hinged condition, is incredibly rare.

Signed Calves and with his clear 1985 certificate, as well as a 1999 P.F. certificate. Catalogue values are for hinged. Yvert €8,250
