EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A GORGEOUS MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE FIRST SPECIAL DELIVERY ISSUE, WHICH IS GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED AND THE ONLY EXAMPLE TO ACHIEVE IT.
The first Special Delivery is easily distinguished from those that follow because the explanatory text at center is straight. In subsequent issues the text at center is altered. It is extremely difficult to obtain in sound, centered and Mint N.H. condition.
With 2013 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98; SMQ $35,000.00). This is the highest grade awarded and no others share this grade. Only one other has graded above 95.
