Description

    5c - 50c First Issue Perforated 16 Set Choice New. This is a very rare complete four note set first brought to the market by Lester Merkin in the 1970's. They are termed Perforated 16 which refers to the number of perforations per 20 millimeters of edge length as compared to the other regular issue notes which have only 12 perforations per 20 millimeters of edge length. No records exist to prove or disprove that this is not a government product but it is not much of a leap of faith to suppose that their origin is from the same source as the Fr. 1310a's. In the O'Mara sale we recently offered the first three denominations of this type and here we have a complete set of four. The notes generally grade Choice New with decent color and crisp paper but there are a couple of tiny pinholes found here and there in each of the notes.
