EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS IS EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST MINT NEVER-HINGED PAIRS OF THE 5-CENT VERTICAL COIL IN EXISTENCE. IT HAS BEEN AWARDED THE GRADE OF SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E., WHICH IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED TO DATE. IT IS THE ONLY PAIR TO ACHIEVE THIS GRADE.

Interestingly, this is the only 5c Washington-Franklin vertical coil stamp ever produced. Demand proved to be so low that none others were made.

With 2001 P.F. and 2004 P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98; SMQ $7,450.00). This is the highest grade awarded to date, and is the only pair to achieve this grade.
