Sale Date — Thursday-Friday, 17-18 March, 2016
Category — 1879 American Bank Note Co. Issue (Scott 182-191)
VERY FINE. AN EXTREMELY RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 1879 6-CENT AMERICAN BANK NOTE COMPANY ISSUE. THIS IS ONLY THE THIRD MINT NEVER-HINGED SINGLE WE HAVE OFFERED SINCE KEEPING COMPUTERIZED RECORDS.
A review of our past auctions plus the records of the P.F. and P.S.E. demonstrates how rare this issue is in Mint N.H. condition. We have offered only two other singles, in our 2007 Odeneal and 2015 Hall sales, plus a block of nine with mixed centering. The P.F. has only certified a handful of singles stating Mint N.H.
With 2015 P.F. certificate
EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL STAMP IN TERMS OF GUM, CENTERING, WIDTH OF MARGINS AND COLOR.
Ex Drucker. 1982 P.F. certificate (no. 113059) no longer accompanies
