EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A STUNNING USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1873 90-CENT CONTINENTAL BANK NOTE COMPANY ISSUE.

The higher-denomination Bank Note issues were normally heavily cancelled, to prevent re-use. This makes it difficult for collectors looking for high-quality stamps to find a suitable copy. Some criteria (centering, color or cancel) is usually sacrificed when pursuing this issue. The stamp offered here, with unusually wide and balanced margins, bright color and a light cancel, is a true condition rarity.

Ex Renne, Mayer, Dr. Hinrichs and "Natalee Grace". With 1987, 2004 and 2012 P.F. certificates (XF-Superb 95). By way of comparison, the highest grade awarded by both The Philatelic Foundation and P.S.E. is 95
