    Twenty-Five Cent Fifth Issue Back Proof

    Milton 5E25R.1 25¢ Fifth Issue Back Proof PCGS Banknote Choice AU 58 Details.
    The back story for this 25¢ note is identical to that of the Ten Cent above. When that 10¢ sheet of fourteen turned up, the sheet that was the source of this 25¢ note turned up with it. This sheet, as with the Ten Cent, was divided and distributed to the collectors of the day. Blocks and pairs still exist. Both sheets were originally obtained by the late Martin Gengerke through this cataloger from Devonshire Rare Coin Galleries. Tom Denly was also involved in the transaction in a confusing cameo role. Neither of us quite remembers how. This is not the first time that this cataloger or Tom Denly has appeared in a sentence with the word "confused." Although it likely is the first time that we both made it into the same sentence. The "Details" grade has been assigned for "Small Repair, Mounting Remnants Minor Pencil."
