    Ex-Marchioni and Ex-Mayer Fr. 1280 Strip of Four

    Fr. 1280 25¢ First Issue PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ Vertical Strip of Four.
    When we last sold this item, it was lot 12603 of the Frederick Mayer Collection in September 2007, where it was already graded Gem 66 EPQ by PMG. Prior to that it was part of the Marchioni Collection in January of 2000. It was described there: "This fascinating strip is perforated only on the left and right vertical margins, but not horizontally. Each of the four notes is a perfect Gem in its own right, and the strip itself, with its top and bottom selvage wholly intact, has incredible eye appeal. This has been one of the prized items in Mike's Collection for over two decades, and tonight it will find a home with another collector who should and probably will prize it just as highly." At that sale, it achieved the runaway price of $7700. At the Mayer sale it realized $4312 on a much quieter Fractional market. Tonight's offering should see a realization right between those two.
