EXTREMELY FINE. ONE OF THE FINEST OF A SMALL HANDFUL OF MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLES OF THE 4-CENT MESA VERDE IMPERFORATE BETWEEN ERROR.
Only 15 pairs are recorded in Datz and 6-9 have the Post Office paper adherence. This is only the third Mint N.H. pair we have offered since 1993 and only one of those other two has comparable centering.
Small Sloane backstamp
EXTREMLEY FINE GEM. THIS MAY WELL BE THE FINEST EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT YELLOWSTONE IMPERFORATE BETWEEN ERROR.
Datz states 50 pairs are known. We have offered many other examples (all but one were hinged), with varying degrees of centering from barely Fine to on the cusp of Extremely Fine, but none have compared to the margins and centering on this gem -- regardless of gum condition.
Ex Floyd. With 1986 P.F. certificate. Scott value as a pair without premium for the third stamp
