    Superb Type II Spinner Back Wide Margin Specimen

    Fr. 1339SP 50¢ Third Issue Wide Margin Type II Spinner Back Superb Gem New. Milton 3P50R.3. From our sale of the Milt Friedberg Collection in January of 1997, where it was described, "An utterly flawless example of this rare and extremely popular Specimen. Type II Spinner reverses were not included in the Specimen sets sold at the Treasury and apparently were not prepared for the purpose of issue, as all known examples lack the bronze '50' surcharge that appears on the regular-issue note. When the Encyclopedia was printed, only six examples were known. Several more have been discovered, and the current total is about a dozen. A number of these have problems, and while two others are the equal of this note, none could possibly be finer. The margins are fully wide, including most of the engraver's rule at both the top and bottom. The paper is pure white, the engraving is razor sharp, and the original embossing effect from the pressure of the plate is very deep and readily apparent. ex-Tom Werner, to Milt on April 25, 1983; CAA MRF 1/97 sale, to Tom O'Mara.
