EXTREMELY FINE GEM. ONE OF THE FINEST MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLES OF THE 90-CENT AMERICAN BANK NOTE CO. 1879 ISSUE IN EXISTENCE, WHICH IS GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E. -- THE HIGHEST GRADE ON RECORD AND ONE OF ONLY TWO STAMPS TO ACHIEVE IT.

The 90c 1879 American Bank Note Co. Issue is extremely difficult to obtain in choice Mint Never-Hinged condition, because of the small supply of well-centered blocks from which Mint N.H. singles could be harvested. We have offered only a few Mint N.H. examples of Scott 191, and none of them can rival the superb quality of this stamp.

With 2006 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $43,500.00). This is the highest grade awarded, and only one other has equaled it.
