    10¢ Fifth Issue Uncut Horizontal Tete-Beche Proof Pair

    Milton 5E10R.2a 10¢ Fifth Issue Uncut Horizontal Back Specimen Pair PMG Gem Uncirculated 65.
    Although this is a different pair, it is identical to Lot 16476 of our O'Mara Collection sale. Printed on India paper mounted on a card. Only seven Tete-Beche 10¢ Fifth Issue reverse pairs exist. All seven pairs trace their origins to a single sheet, which was discovered in November of 1985. The sheet was cut, and divided among major collectors. The notes are true Proofs, with ink laid on so heavily and sharply that the design elements can be felt with one's fingers. This Tete-Beche arrangement was created so that the localized anti-counterfeiting stain could be produced in the center of the sheet and still appear at the right end of each note when the notes were separated. A Gem pair.
