    Finest Graded Fr. 1273SP Face

    Fr. 1273SP 15¢ Third Issue Narrow Margin Face PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ.
    This is a beautiful sample of one of the key notes of specimen Fractional, the 15¢ Grant and Sherman Face note with autographed signatures of Colby and Spinner. These specimens were only ever found on the very rare pink and green Fractional Shields and are Rarity-5 notes, with about 35-40 pieces known. The note offers very bright and fresh unwatermarked paper, without the reverse SPECIMEN surcharge usually seen on specimen Fractionals. The margins are all tight, but clear of the design all the way around. The printing is very sharp and the hand-penned signatures are clear. The note bears no evidence of removal from a shield, which is an extreme rarity in these notes. This note stands alone at the top of the PMG census. They have graded seventeen of these, with this one 65 and nothing higher.
