EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS FANTASTIC STAMP HAS BEEN GRADED GEM 100 BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED TO DATE AND ONLY ONE OTHER SHARES THIS GRADE.

Collectors who have tried to assemble a set of the Kans.-Nebr. overprints are often frustrated at the lack of superior centering and at the small margin size of this issue. They rarely come in higher grades. For the 22 different stamps of the issue, only four denominations of the Kans. overprints and only six denominations of the Nebr. overprints have stamps graded 100.

With 2009 P.S.E. certificate (Gem 100; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 98, SMQ $2,800.00 as 98). This is the highest grade awarded to date and only one other has achieved this grade.
