    Fr. 1300 Milton 3R25.3a 25c Third Issue About New, Damaged. We sold this important Fr. 1300 once before as part of our September 2000 Sale, where it was described, "This rare Fr. 1300 was from the R.H. 'Rocky' Rockholt Sale held by NASCA, September 12, 1981. The note is lightly aged and is particularly interesting because of the handwritten notation in the top margin: 'First issued Feb. 22, 1865.' There is a second handwritten comment at the right, but it is illegible as two small missing margin pieces have taken a good portion of the writing away. It was our opinion in 1981, and remains so today, that the missing words are 'printed at Washington.' No damage extends to the frame line and the note is held from Uncirculated by a single center fold. It is a fascinating and important piece that realized $675 on a $250 estimate in 1981, and will likely triple that realization tonight." We were just about right with our guess of value, as the note realized $2,090 in our September 2000 Sale.
