EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A BEAUTIFUL AND PRISTINE EXAMPLE OF THE 12-CENT 1894 UNWATERMARKED NEWSPAPER ISSUE, GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E. THIS STANDS ALONE AS THE HIGHEST GRADED.
This is a difficult issue to obtain in sound condition with such choice centering. We would rank this among the top two or three we have encountered.
Ex Inman. With 2001 P.F. and 2016 P.S.E. certificates (OGph, XF-Superb 95 Jumbo; SMQ $10,000.00). This is the highest grade awarded and it is shared by no others.
EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A STUNNING USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1895 $100.00 WATERMARKED NEWSPAPERS AND PERIODICALS ISSUE, GRADED SUPERB 98 JUMBO BY P.S.E.
The 1895 Watermarked Issue is much scarcer in used condition than unused. With 2003 P.F. and 2019 P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98 Jumbo; SMQ $4,000.00). This is the highest grade awarded and it is shared by only one other. Even among the vastly more plentiful unused supply of this stamp, only one grades higher than 98J.
