    Description

    Fr. 1282 25¢ First Issue PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ.
    "Mr. Mayer acquired this note at our sale of the Tom O'Mara Collection in May of 2005 for $1,440. It was described there, 'Strict paper originality and deep embossing combine with perfect back centering, ideal color and needle-sharp printing on this rare 25¢ number. As with all four postage-currency denominations, the straight-edge, no monogram variety is the scarcest. Neither the Friedberg (About New) nor Gengerke (Choice New) Collection, which we sold in 1997 and 1995 respectively, contained a Gem of this number.' " That was our Mayer Auction description. This is the only example that PMG has graded at this level with none higher.
    Previously from The Frederick Mayer Collection.
