    Milton 2E50F.1b 50¢ Second Issue Experimental Gem New. We've led off the 50¢ Experimentals with the same note that led them off in our Friedberg Collection Sale, where it was lot 1040. This piece is arguably the fifth member of the beautiful four-piece set that appears as lot 16375. It's printed from the full, finished face plate, with the large bronze "50" overprinted on the face of the note along with the bronze date, "March 21, 1863." It's identical to the pieces in the set of four but for its blank back. It appears to have been item #6 on Ed Frossard's October 1893 listing of the Spencer Clark Collection. The note is in magnificent as-issued condition, with broad, even margins, bright paper, ink and bronze.
