EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A MAGNIFICENT MINT NEVER HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE $1.00 TRANS-MISSISSIPPI.
The $1.00 Trans-Mississippi is considered by many to be the most beautiful of all United States postage stamps. Although Mint Never-Hinged examples have been supplied from blocks and sheets broken over the years, the centering of this example is unusually choice.
From the "Maine Find" offered in our 2000 Rarities sale. With 2000 and 2011 P.F. certificates.
