EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 3-CENT SMALL BANK NOTE ISSUE, GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 JUMBO BY P.S.E.
With 2015 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95 Jumbo; SMQ $3,250.00). Only one has graded higher (at 98, ex Scarsdale) and only one other shares this grade (ex Whitman). Neither had such impressive selvage.
EXTREMELY FINE. A GORGEOUS LIGHTLY HINGED PLATE BLOCK OF THE 4-CENT 1890 ISSUE.
The 4c Small Bank Note issue is very rare as a wide top plate block with choice centering. A review using Power Search confirms this. We have offered fewer than five in any gum condition since keeping computerized records and none compare to the centering of the superb plate block offered here.
With 2016 P.F. certificate
