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). Only two stamps share this grade -- the other was recently offered in our sale of the Natalee Grace Collection. This is also one of only six used Bank Note stamps (five different Scott numbers) between Scott 134 and 218 to achieve this perfect grade
