Sale Number 1014, Lot Number 1647, 1c-50c 1898 Trans-Mississippi Issue (Scott 285-291)50c Trans-Mississippi (291), 50c Trans-Mississippi (291)50c Trans-Mississippi (291). Mint N.H. with imprint selvage at top, fresh color and detailed impression on bright paper, choice centering with wide margins

EXTREMELY FINE. AN OUTSTANDING MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 50-CENT TRANS-MISSISSIPPI ISSUE. A VERY DIFFICULT ISSUE TO FIND IN THE HIGHER GRADES.

The 50c Trans-Mississippi is extremely scarce in well-centered condition. It also seems that fewer 50c stamps exist in Mint N.H. condition, relative to the dollar values of the set.

With 2003 P.F. and 2007 P.S.E. certificates (XF 90; SMQ $5,400.00). Only five have graded higher to date and only four others share this grade
