EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS STUNNING MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 8-CENT COLUMBIAN ISSUE HAS ACHIEVED THE GRADE OF GEM 100 FROM P.S.E.
With 2005 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (Gem 100; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 98, SMQ $9,100.00 as 98). Only one has graded higher (at 100J) and this is the only example to achieve this coveted grade.
