Sale 1245, Lot 1647, $1.00-$2.00 1898 Trans-Mississippi Issue (Scott 292-293)$2.00 Trans-Mississippi (293). Original gum, barely hinged, outstanding centering, deep rich color and detailed impression

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. AN OUTSTANDING LIGHTLY HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE $2.00 TRANS-MISSISSIPPI ISSUE, GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E.

All of the $2.00 Trans-Mississippi stamps were printed in a single day's run on June 3, 1898. The $2.00 was printed in sheets that have narrower spacing between the horizontal rows than between the vertical columns. For this reason, it is extremely difficult to obtain stamps with top and bottom margins that equal the sides.

Ex "Alan". With 1998 P.F. and 2012 P.S.E. certificates (OGph, XF-Superb 95; SMQ $6,500.00). Only three grade higher (all at 98)
