EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT 1890 ISSUE, SCOTT 223.
With 2009 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $2,400.00)
EXTREMELY FINE. A MAGNIFICENT MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 30-CENT 1890 ISSUE.
In our experience the 30c 1890 is the second most difficult of the 1890 Small Bank Note Issue to obtain in choice Mint N.H. condition (the 90c is somewhat more challenging). The few examples graded 95 or better have brought thousands of dollars at auction. This balanced and essentially perfectly-centered stamp is worth its full SMQ value, in our opinion.
With 2002 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (XF 90; SMQ $2,800.00).
