    Description

    5¢ Second Issue Plain Paper Experimental Back PCGS Very Choice New 64.
    From the John J. Ford, Jr. Collection. PCGS has mysteriously not reported 5c experimentals in its population report, but we are quite confident that this piece would be near the top even if the much more common fiber paper notes of the same variety were to be included. This is a very well embossed example with huge margins. The note has no bronze on either side, but it does have the normal blue "SPECIMEN" and half moon cancels.
