EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS STUNNING MINT NEVER-HINGED STAMP HAS BEEN AWARDED THE GRADE OF GEM 100 JUMBO BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE POSSIBLE AND THIS IS ONE OF ONLY TWO TO ACHIEVE THIS GRADE. A KEY TO A GEM SET OF THE POPULAR AND FAMOUS GRAF ZEPPELIN ISSUE.

The Graf Zeppelin issue is extremely difficult to find graded 100. For the 65c, one has graded 100 and two are graded 100 Jumbo. For the $1.30, five have graded 100 and none is graded 100 Jumbo. For the $2.60, only one has graded 100 and only one has graded 100 Jumbo. The stamp offered here is therefore one of only three stamps from the entire series to achieve the perfect grade of 100 Jumbo.

With 2012 P.S.E. certificate (Gem 100 Jumbo; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 98, SMQ $2,000.00 as 98). This is the highest grade possible on the grading chart and only one other has achieved this grade.
