    Unique Inverted Overprint Fr. 1244 Complete Sheet

    Inverted Overprint Error Complete Sheet Fr. 1244 Milton 2R10.1i Second Issue Uncut Sheet of 20 PMG Choice Extremely Fine 45 EPQ.
    A most pleasing error sheet that boasts plenty of originality and has rightfully earned the EPQ grade modifier. This is the first time we have offered a complete sheet of inverted bronze overprint errors such as this. Besides being an error sheet, it is labeled in Milton Friedberg's Encyclopedia as unique. We can find no evidence to contradict his findings. The face plate number is 321 and the back plate number is 20. The inverted overprint bronze "10" counters are well centered on each of the notes. The provenance for this sheet is impeccable as it covers over a 100 years. It's first trip down the numismatic aisle was as lot 2357 in the June 24, 1914 Henry Chapman auction of the George Parsons Collection. It next resided in the F.C.C. Boyd Collection, where John J. Ford, Jr. would purchase it from the Boyd Estate. It's next auction appearances occurred in 2004 and 2007, with the latter being when our consignor was able to secure the winning bid. Now, the opportunity presents itself for this unique sheet to enter another noteworthy collection.
    From the Tabacco Family Collection
