    Fr. 1229 Milton 1R5.2g 5¢ First Issue Extremely Fine-About New. An extremely rare variety, perforated only horizontally. In this case, the perforations clearly did not simply miss the note, as this example is from the lower-right corner of the sheet, and it has the half-inch-wide selvage at the right and the bottom, clearly showing that the vertical perforations were never applied to this sheet. The note has all its original embossing along with most all the qualities of a perfect Gem, being separated from that grade only by three light folds.
