EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT NEW YORK POSTMASTER'S PROVISIONAL ISSUE WITHOUT SIGNATURE AND WITH A STITCH WATERMARK. THIS IS THE FINEST WE HAVE OFFERED SINCE KEEPING COMPUTERIZED RECORDS.

While stitch watermarks are occasionally seen on the U.S. 1847 Issue, they are extremely rare on the New York Postmaster's Provisional. Philip T. Wall discussed stitch watermarks on the New York provisionals in Chronicle 112 (p. 227), citing Philip H. Ward's 1926 article in Mekeel's Stamp News about a stitch watermark example that was the first Ward had ever encountered. Wall stated that this is the only reference he had ever read about the variety and had never encountered one himself.

With 2012 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95; unpriced in SMQ). This is by far the highest grade awarded to a Scott 9X1e (without signature) by P.S.E. The next highest grade is VF 80. In fact, the main listing for the 5c New York, the much more common Scott 9X1 with "ACM" signature, does not have any stamps graded above 95 (and only two at 95). Scott value without premium for the stitch watermark
