Category — 1879 American Bank Note Co. Issue (Scott 182-191)
VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A BEAUTIFUL MINT NEVER-HINGED 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 choice 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.
Ex Whitman. With 1992 (for a block), 1998 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (VF 80; SMQ $3,000.00)
