EXTREMELY FINE. A GORGEOUS MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE $5.00 COLUMBIAN ISSUE.

We could not begin to count the number of $5.00 Columbian stamps sold by the Siegel firm. However, the number of Extremely Fine, Mint Never-Hinged examples is very limited. Due to the high face value, multiples are very rare. For much of philatelic history stamps were hinged into albums. This fact, plus the lack of multiples, explains the scarcity of Mint N.H. copies.

With 1992, 2001 and 2006 P.F. certificates (VF-XF 85)
