Mar. 28, 1918" duplex datestamp, Extremely Fine Gem, with 2002 and 2008 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $575.00), this is a notoriously difficult stamp to find in superb condition -- either unused or used, this is the only used pair awarded the grade of 95 with none higher, the highest graded used joint line pair is only 75 (the late Mr. Depew had one but he did not deign to place it into his main collection, so it is not offered here), SMQ is very low in our opinion
