    Fr. 1289 Milton 2R25.8a 25¢ Second Issue Superb Gem New. One of the very nicest Second Issue Fiber Paper Notes of any number that we have seen or handled. The margins are jumbo and even all the way around on both sides; the paper, ink and bronze are all perfectly bright and the printing has a sharpness and clarity that is unusual for even a regular-paper issue, let alone a fiber-paper note. As close to a technically perfect example as we've ever seen for a Second Issue Fiber Paper Fractional, this is a dead ringer to (although not the same piece as) the Scheuermann example which we sold in January of 2001 for $2,475.This piece is ex-Gengerke Lot 100 (certificate included with lot), which realized $2,310 in 1995. In the current Fractional market, which has begun to appreciate condition rarity, this piece could easily double that figure.
