EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A MAGNIFICENT WIDE-MARGINED AND LIGHTLY-CANCELLED EXCAMPLE OF THE $1.00 TRANS-MISSISSIPPI, REGARDED BY MANY TO BE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL STAMP EVER ISSUED BY THE UNITED STATES.

Ex Bowman. With 1988, 1998 P.F. and 2008 P.S.E. certificates (the latter graded XF 90; SMQ $1,500.00). We continue to be astonished that this did not receive a grade higher than 90 or at least the "Jumbo" appellation. In our opinion, this stamp rivals the 100J we sold for $20,000 (Sale 1025, lot 204) -- we'll let the bidders judge
