EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE $20.00 "SERIES 1940" ISSUE.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A BEAUTIFUL EXAMPLE OF THE $50.00 1940 DOCUMENTARY ISSUE. THIS IS ONE OF THE RAREST OF THE DATED DOCUMENTARY STAMPS.
Very few examples of the $50.00 Series 1940 stamp are known. It is extremely difficult to obtain in any condition, much less the superb condition offered here.
With 2002 P.F. certificate
EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS IS THE FINEST EXAMPLE OF THE RARE $500.00 "SERIES 1940" OVERPRINT ISSUE WE HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED. A PHENOMENAL STAMP.
A Power Search review found six others, including three with either cut or punched cancels, two with manuscript and one with both manuscript and handstamp cancels (margin trimmed). This is the only example located with Power Search cancelled solely by a handstamp. A review of other major name sales also failed to find any others cancelled solely by a handstamp.
With 2002 P.F. certificate.
VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A RARE AND DESIRABLE UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE $1,000.00 "SERIES 1942" DOCUMENTARY ISSUE.
Ex DePriest. With 2003 P.F. certificate. Scott Catalogue lists but does not price this issue in unused condition. It is probably comparable in rarity to, or rarer than, Scott R357 (two located with Power Search), which catalogues $5,000.00
VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A RARE SOUND EXAMPLE OF THE $500.00 "SERIES OF 1944" OVERPRINT WHICH IS CANCELLED SOLELY BY A HANDSTAMP. THIS IS EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST IN EXISTENCE.
This issue, when it is found at all, normally comes with either cut cancels or perfins, or will have staple holes. The example offered here, with none of those detractions, is a true condition rarity.

FRESH AND EXTREMELY FINE. A RARE UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE $1,000.00 "SERIES OF 1944" OVERPRINT.
We are aware of perhaps one other in unused condition (serial no. 20091).
Ex "Scarsdale". With 2005 P.F. certificate
VERY FINE. A RARE EXAMPLE OF THE $5,000.00 "SERIES 1952" REVENUE ISSUE.
We have offered only seven others since keeping computerized records, including four with perf cancels, one with manuscript only, one with both manuscript and handstamp and only one other cancelled solely by a handstamp.
