EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SPECTACULAR MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF SCOTT 519, GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E. EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST IN EXISTENCE.

This stamp was created in 1917 when a small excess supply of the imperforate, double-line watermarked Scott 344 was returned by the New York City post office to the Bureau for credit. Rather than issue the credit, the Bureau perforated the sheets with the current perf 11 wheels and returned them to the New York City post office for public sale.

Ex Hoffman. With 2004 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98; SMQ $7,500.00). Only three have attained this lofty grade, which is the highest awarded
