EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS PHENOMENAL STAMP IS WITHOUT QUESTION ONE OF THE FINEST IN EXISTENCE. IT HAS BEEN GRADED GEM 100 JUMBO BY P.S.E., WHICH IS THE HIGHEST GRADE POSSIBLE.

This stamp, with its mathematically perfect centering, Jumbo margins, long perforations, detailed impression and fresh color, is truly remarkable.

Ex Tahoe. With 2003 P.F. and 2008 P.S.E. certificates (Gem 100 Jumbo; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 98, SMQ $425.00 as 98).
