    Rare Yellow Paper Essay

    Milton 2E5F.3a 5¢ Second Issue Essay PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ.
    A rare Milton number and one of two that we have sold. The other was originally sold as part of our Tom O'Mara sale. PMG has only graded a single example and this is it. This Milton number is printed on thick yellow paper from a finished face plate. These were printed using a brand new plate under particularly heavy pressure as the embossing clearly penetrates through to the back of the thick paper. The O'Mara note was a raw Choice New piece with a hinge remnant and pencil annotation on back, yet still approached a four-figure price. This vastly superior piece should be the nicest known for a very long time to come.
