EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL EXAMPLE OF THE 1879 ONE-CENT AGRICULTURE AMERICAN BANK NOTE COMPANY PRINTING ON SOFT PAPER.

As discerning collectors know, the Officials can be extremely difficult to obtain in sound, centered condition. This is especially true of the American printings on soft porous papers, which are prone to faults.

With 2016 P.F. and 2017 P.S.E. certificates (XF 90; SMQ $9,000.00). Only one has graded higher (at 98J) and one other shares this grade.
