EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THE 50-CENT ORIGINAL PROCESS PART PERFORATED FIRST ISSUE REVENUE IS VERY RARE IN USED CONDITION.
A Power Search review reveals how elusive this stamp is in used condition, despite its very modest Scott Retail value.

With 2016 P.F. certificate (XF 90). Scott Retail (in italics, meaning trades infrequently) is woefully out of date. We have sold two examples for $6,000 and $6,750 in recent auctions
