Ex "Westchester". With 2007 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98 Jumbo; SMQ $2,000.00). This is the highest grade awarded and it is shared by only four others, a statistic that has not changed since 2010
EXTREMELY FINE GEM. AN ABSOLUTELY STUNNING MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 4-CENT PAN-AMERICAN ISSUE, GRADED GEM 100 BY P.S.E.
The Pan-American Issue is notoriously difficult to find with anything even approaching the term "wide margins". Most high-grade copies have margins which measure equally, but are not what one would consider wide when compared to other contemporary issues. The stamp offered here is the exception to that rule.
With 2012 P.S.E. certificate (Gem 100; SMQ $22,500.00). This is the only example at the Gem 100 grade, with only one exceeding it at Gem 100 Jumbo (offered in our 2019 Gems sale).
VERY FINE-EXTREMELY FINE. A CHOICE PLATE BLOCK OF THE 8-CENT PAN-AMERICAN ISSUE AND RARELY SEEN WITH SUCH PRECISE CENTERING.
This Mint N.H. wide bottom margin plate block of the 8c Pan-American is among the finest we have offered.
