EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A GORGEOUS MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 1898 2-CENT TYPE IV IN THE ROSE CARMINE SHADE. A DIFFICULT ISSUE TO FIND IN SUCH SUPERB CONDITION.

The Type IV Rose Carmine offered here should not be confused with its more common brethren. According to Brookman, "The really scarce shade of the 1898 2c is the Rose Carmine. It is a shade not too unlike the Pink of the 1861 Series except that it is considerably darker."

Ex Gorham. With 1999 and 2006 P.F. certificates (XF-Superb 95). This is the highest grade awarded by the P.F. and none share it. By way of comparison, only one has graded higher at P.S.E. and only one shares this grade.
