    Milton 4S25F.1 25¢ Fourth Issue Plate Proof Gem New. Previously from our Friedberg Sale lot 1102, where it was described as: "An utterly Superb Proof of the 25¢ Fourth Issue note pulled from the finished plate onto soft, white India paper. Very few Fourth Issue Proofs are known. This note is represented by only two other known examples--one of which is in the Smithsonian, and both of which have hole-cancels in the signature block and wide margins. This piece, which has margins the size of a normally issued note, is the only known proof of the finished plate that is uncancelled. The printing is razor-sharp, obviously from a brand-new plate, and possibly from the master. The paper, although appearing to be the normal India Proof Stock at a glance, has a scattering of red fibers in it. Nothing could be more rare, and the condition is utterly unimprovable." This piece had previously been lot 2326 from NASCA's Rockholt Sale.
