    Rare 1286a

    Fr. 1286a Slate Back 25c Second Issue PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ. This is one of the best margined examples of this scarce Slate Back variety that you are ever likely to find as they are notoriously poorly margined. The back has distinct surcharges, the face bronzing is perfectly centered, and the all important back design is a deep slate gray, without a hint of purple. This is about as pleasing an example of this rare (fewer than 30 known) variety as one will likely ever encounter.
