Sale Number 978, Lot Number 1092, Trans-Mississippi Issue50c Trans-Mississippi (291), 50c Trans-Mississippi (291)50c Trans-Mississippi (291). Mint N.H., intense color and impression, beautifully centered with well-balanced margins

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 50-CENT TRANS-MISSISSIPPI. A BEAUTIFUL STAMP IN EVERY RESPECT.

The 50c Trans-Mississippi is extremely scarce in well-centered condition. It also seems that fewer 50c stamps exist in Mint N.H. condition, relative to the dollar values of the set. The combination of Extremely Fine centering and Mint N.H. condition is exponentially rarer.

1999 P.F. certificate no longer accompanies. P.S.E. encapsulated (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $18,200.00). Only one has graded higher to date in the P.S.E. Population Report and only three others share this grade.
