Sale Number 821, Lot Number 805, Trans-Mississippi Issue50c Trans-Mississippi (291), 50c Trans-Mississippi (291)50c Trans-Mississippi (291). Mint N.H., intense color and impression, perfectly centered with unusually wide balanced margins

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. AN OUTSTANDING EXAMPLE OF THE 50-CENT TRANS-MISSISSIPPI ISSUE IN THE FINEST ATTAINABLE MINT NEVER-HINGED CONDITION.

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.
