    Fr. 1268 15¢ Fourth Issue PMG Choice About Unc 58 EPQ.
    Fr. 1268 is quite a rare Friedberg number, although its price is held back and its rarity is suspect due to the large number of incorrect attributions. The watermark can be difficult to locate on many Fr. 1267s, and the lack of a watermark is what makes a 1268 a 1268. As the result of a dangerous combination of partial knowledge and a desire to have the scarcer variety, many, many Fr. 1267s wind up being labeled as 1268s. To carefully identify an actual 1268, the note needs to be high-grade and to have some margin area; the often-difficult-to-see watermark is less of a hassle to spot in a place on the note where there is no ink of any kind. The presently offered note has two very broad margins and excellent color. The reason for the 58 grade is a single small corner fold, and the note has the appearance of a choice new piece.
