EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS STUNNING MINT NEVER-HINGED STAMP IS GRADED GEM 100 JUMBO BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE POSSIBLE AND THIS IS ONE OF ONLY TWO TO ACHIEVE THIS GRADE. A KEY TO A PERFECT SET OF THE POPULAR AND FAMOUS GRAF ZEPPELIN ISSUE.
The Graf Zeppelin issue is extremely difficult to obtain in Gem 100 grade. For the 65c, three are graded 100 and two are graded 100 Jumbo. For the $1.30, nine are graded 100 with none graded 100 Jumbo. For the $2.60, only one is graded 100 and only one is graded 100 Jumbo. Therefore, the stamp offered here is one of only three stamps from the entire issue to achieve the highest grade of Gem 100 Jumbo.
With 2012 P.S.E. certificate (Gem 100 Jumbo; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 100, SMQ $4,450.00 as 100)
