    Courtesy Autographed Set - Fr. 1228 5¢ First Issue PCGS Choice About New 58PPQ, Fr. 1240 10¢ First Issue PCGS Choice About New 58, Fr. 1279 25¢ First Issue PCGS Choice About New 58PPQ, and Fr. 1310 50¢ First Issue PCGS Very Choice New 64.
    This denomination set of Postage Currency would be a highlight in any collection of Courtesy autographs. The set was part of the John Jay Ford inventory, which was auctioned off about 15 years ago. Each note in this well-matched set of perforated first issue notes has been autographed by A. U. Wyman vertically in bold black ink. All of the notes are the perforated with monogram variety. The Fr. 1240 received an italic grade due to a minor stain. We have actually sold a number of courtesy autographed notes in recent months and even the most mundane pieces seem to sell for around $250-$350 each. The Fr. 1310 is worth a few hundred dollars as a host note, not including the added value of the courtesy autograph. (Total: 4 notes)
