Description

    Fr. 1229 5¢ First Issue PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ. A flawless example of this very scarce variety. Very few full Gem examples exit of Fr. 1229. In fact, PMG has graded only this note as 66, with none higher. None could be prettier than this well margined and deeply perforated fresh little jewel. The original embossing, something which is almost never seen on First Issue notes, is plainly evident even through the PMG holder. This, along with the sharpness of the printing, lends the impression that this note was made very early in the life of this plate. Mr. Mayer paid $490 for this piece in 1997. (1500-up)
    From CAA Friedberg January 1997 Lot 477.
    From The Frederick Mayer Collection
