    Gem Quality 5¢ Negative Essay

    Milton 2E5R.?? 5¢ Second Issue Negative Essay PCGS Gem New 65PPQ, 2 POCs.
    We can find no record of this particular Negative Essay. O'Mara, Ford and Friedberg all had similar notes, but none were stamped and punched and missing the bronze "5" overprint. This is the type that Friedberg categorizes as Milton 2E5R.??, but the exact number cannot be found by this cataloger. In any event, it is a highly important Negative, particularly residing in a 65 PPQ holder.
