    Superb Wide Margin Five Cent Pair

    Fr. 1231SP 5¢ First Issue Wide Margin Pair PMG Superb Gem Unc 67 EPQ and Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ. When we last auctioned this pair in 1996, we described them as, "Both the Face and Back are fresh, perfect and fully original. Both are extremely wide, and show most of their cutting guides. This super quality is rarely seen in easily damaged Wide Margin Specimens." At that sale eleven years ago, Mr. Mayer paid nearly $500 for this wonderful pair. Today, with the notes now residing in high-end PMG holders, the price should be many multiples of that decade-old number.
