EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A STUNNING MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 1914 20-CENT PERF 12 SINGLE-LINE WATERMARK ISSUE, SCOTT 419, WHICH HAS BEEN GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E.

With 2009 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $2,050.00). Only four have graded higher to date and nine others share this grade, but this seems to be much more elusive than the numbers would indicate -- the next-highest graded copy we have offered is an 85.
