EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB AND SPECTACULAR EXAMPLE OF THE IMPERFORATE $25.00 MORTGAGE FIRST ISSUE REVENUE STAMP.

A Power Search review located a few Extremely Fine sound examples of the $25.00 Mortgage Imperforate in our past sales, but none have four huge margins to match this stamp (the one stamp that does has a tear). This could arguably be the finest extant.
