A VERY FINE AND CELEBRATED COVER. THIS IS THE ONLY RECORDED FIRST DAY COVER OF ANY 1890 SMALL BANK NOTE ISSUE.
This cover was formerly owned by Ed Siskin, who collaborated with Henry Scheuer for an article about the cover, published in the January-February 1979 issue of First Days (the publication of the American First Day Cover Society). Although many 1890 values were available at over 400 post offices, this is the only First Day cover to have surfaced. Today, 40 years after the article was written, it is still the only known First Day for the issue.
Ex Siskin and Dr. Martin. With 1975 AFDCS and 1975 P.F. certificates. Scott Retail $35,000.00
