EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB MINT NEVER HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 50-CENT TRANS-MISSISSIPPI ISSUE.

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 two dollar values of the set. The combination of Extremely Fine centering and Mint N.H. condition is exponentially rarer -- not to mention the plate number selvage.

With 1999 P.F. certificate
