EXTREMELY FINE GEM. IT IS DIFFICULT TO IMAGINE A FINER EXAMPLE OF THIS OFFICES IN CHINA ISSUE. A WONDERFUL CONDITION RARITY GRADED SUPERB 98 JUMBO BY P.S.E.

P.S.E. encapsulated (Superb 98 Jumbo; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 98, SMQ $2,300.00 as 98). This is the highest grade awarded to date and the only example to achieve this grade. A review of the P.S.E. Population Report for the underlying stamp, Scott 508, will also give an indication of its rarity in higher grades. The significantly more available Scott 508 only has four stamps graded 98J or above.
