    Fr. 1381 Milton 5DP50R.1 50¢ Fifth Issue Tete-Beche Back Pair PMG About Uncirculated 53. Although not noted on the PMG holder, this lovely Tete-Beche pair was previously Lot 1061 from the massive Stack's May 2004 sale of a western collection, and the original flip is included. The pair has the full appearance of Gems, but there are a number of minor paper wrinkles as well as a light vertical fold between the two subjects. Ten Cent and Twenty Five Cent Tete-Beche pairs are far more common. We know of only three examples of these 50¢ pairs. This is the regular-issue back design as adopted. They were printed by Joseph R. Carpenter in Philadelphia.
