EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 2-CENT DEEP ROSE TYPE Ia, GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E. THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

The Type Ia Scott 500 was created during an experiment at the Bureau in creating a new type of transfer roll. A die was made from the old Type I transfer roll, containing ten impressions. A new transfer roll was then made, using the new ten-impression master die. This new transfer roll was then used to create two new plates. There are distinct differences between the plates created using this method and the old method of using a one-die impression to create the transfer roll.

With 2018 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 95J, SMQ as 95J $1,750.00). This is the highest grade awarded to a used Scott 500 and it is shared by no others
