Category — 1904 Louisiana Purchase, 1907 Jamestown Issues (Scott 323-330)
EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT JAMESTOWN ISSUE.
The Jamestown Issue is notorious for its tight spacing and narrow margins, which causes most copies to be off-center to some degree. High grades are extremely difficult to obtain on this issue in any denomination.
With 1975 P.F. and 2012 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95 Jumbo; SMQ $3,000.00). Only three stamps have been graded higher (two at 98, one at 98J).
