    PMG 66 Slate Back Fr. 1286a

    Fr. 1286a 25¢ Second Issue Slate Back PMG Gem Uncirculated 66.
    An early encapsulation lacking the EPQ comment, which PMG will place there on request at this grade level. This is one of only two Slate Backs that PMG has graded 66, with none higher. The important back coloration on this particular example is an extremely deep gray that is solid throughout the design. We've handled about 20 examples of this note in all grades, and this is among the darkest, most distinct examples we've seen. It's also beautifully centered on both sides, with unusually broad margins.
