Sale 1075, Lot 1129, 1870-88 Bank Note Issues30c Full Black (190). Mint N.H., intense shade, beautifully centered with wide margins

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 30-CENT 1879 AMERICAN BANK NOTE ISSUE. THIS ISSUE IS RARELY OBTAINABLE IN CHOICE NEVER-HINGED CONDITION.

The 30c 1879 American Bank Note Company issue is surprisingly difficult to obtain in Mint N.H. condition. It is surprising because the 15c (Scott 189) is readily available. However, a survey of our photo records and auction library revealed the scarcity of well-centered 30c blocks from which singles could be removed. A review of Power Search found only nine other Mint N.H. singles.

With 2014 P.S.E. certificate (VF-XF 85; SMQ $4,650.00)
