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.
