EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE $1.00 PARCEL POST, GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E.
According to Johl and Gobie, the $1.00 Parcel Post stamp originally had the manufacturing design ultimately used for the 25c stamp. This fruit growing scene is from a photograph provided by the Department of Agriculture of a grove in Florida.
1990 and 1993 P.F. certificates no longer accompany. With 2008 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98; SMQ $8,000.00). Only three grade higher (highest is 100) and only five others share this lofty grade.
