    First Issue Fifty Cent Green Trial-Color Essay

    Milton 1E50R.1 50¢ First Issue Trial-Color Essay PMG Choice Uncirculated 64. Printed in bright green ink on thin white India paper. This off-color First Issue back is unique. No other example is known of or suspected to exist. The note is pristine and beautifully bright, its only problems being some very minor glue traces at the edges of the blank back and two miniscule nicks at the margins. All First Issue Essays are of the highest rarity, and this one has the added attraction of great eye appeal due to the striking color. (7500-up)
