    Finest Known Fr. 1276SP--No Signature Grant-Sherman Face

    Fr. 1276SP 15¢ Third Issue Wide Margin Specimen PCGS Very Choice New 64. This wonderful example of an unsigned Grant-Sherman Wide Margin Specimen had spent the last 125+ years in an album put together beginning in the 1870s--an album that contained a number of great things, including a PCGS-67 $5 Educational, several rare Postal Notes, and the two stamp envelopes that also appear in this sale. This finest known example of the now three Fr. 1276SP notes has broad margins all around, perfect print quality, beautiful colors and great eye appeal. It is flawless, save for a very light stain mostly in the margin area to the right of Grant. The far narrower Fr. 1276SP that appeared as lot 1174 of our January 1997 sale of the Milt Friedberg Collection had been considered unique for decades. A second example turned up in the major Fractional collection sold by Stack's last October. That piece realized $16,100. This example, the finest of the now three known, should easily surpass that figure.
