Sale Number 978, Lot Number 1139, Officials1c Agriculture, Soft Paper (O94), 1c Agriculture, Soft Paper (O94)1c Agriculture, Soft Paper (O94). Bottom right corner margin single, without gum as issued, intense color, perfect centering with Jumbo margins

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A MAGNIFICENT POSITION PIECE OF THE ONE-CENT AGRICULTURE ON SOFT PAPER, GRADED SUPERB 98 JUMBO BY P.S.E -- THE ONLY EXAMPLE TO ACHIEVE THIS GRADE. THIS STAMP IS MOST LIKELY THE FINEST EXAMPLE IN EXISTENCE.

As discerning collectors know, the Officials can be extremely difficult to obtain in sound, centered condition -- particularly among the American printings on soft porous paper. The example offered here, with sheet margin on two sides and with Jumbo margins, is truly extraordinary.

1994 P.F. certificate no longer accompanies. P.S.E. encapsulated (Superb 98 Jumbo; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 98, SMQ $18,900.00 as 98). This is the only example to be awarded this exalted grade in the P.S.E. Population Report. The next closest grade is a 90.
