    High Grade Slate Back Fractional

    Fr. 1286a 25¢ Second Issue Slate Back PMG About Uncirculated 55.
    This is a wonderful example of this interesting slate back variety which does not have so much as a hint of purple. The face is nicely margined and the back is printed in a deep slate gray. The centering of the back is somewhat skewed upward but is not close to touching the edge. Bold surcharges only add to the allure of this quality Slate Back fractional. We recently sold a Very Fine example with heavy staining on the back and that note still realized about $325.
