Sale Number 1205, Lot Number 2064, 1893 Columbian Issue50c Columbian (240), 50c Columbian (240)50c Columbian (240). Mint N.H. with wide bottom sheet selvage, colossal Jumbo margins and gorgeous centering, intense color and proof-like impression on fresh paper

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS SUPERB MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 50-CENT COLUMBIAN IS, IN OUR OPINION, THE FINEST EXTANT. A STAMP WITH TREMENDOUS VISUAL APPEAL.

While we have long been a supporter of numerical grading and often quote P.S.E. Population Report statistics, there are certain stamps that defy numerical grading. This sheet-margin example of the 50c Columbian is such a stamp. The conservative grade of XF 90 Jumbo assigned to this magnificent gem is a prime example of the limitation of numerical grading when applied to sheet-margin stamps. We have offered 50c Columbians in grades of 95 and 98, but, in our opinion, none of those exceed the beauty of this stamp. Its past realizations also confirm our opinion -- it realized $22,000 hammer in our Sale 1100.

Ex Parker, Higgins and "Westchester." With 1998 P.F. and 2007 P.S.E. certificates (XF 90 Jumbo; SMQ $5,750.00).
