    50¢ Second Issue Fiber Paper Experimental PCGS Apparent Extremely Fine 45.
    2E50F.4e. Missing from the Friedberg sale and the O'Mara sale, both of which had similar notes that were on yellow bond paper. This note is relatively common stamped and punched, but to our best knowledge is a rarity in modern times on heavy fiber paper. Virtually identical in appearance to lot 15224 of our 2014 FUN auction. That example graded PCGS About New 53PPQ and sold for $1,175. It had the same light foxing on the back but without the comment "Minor stains" noted for the present offering. A note that would have commanded a far higher price 25 years ago, but most of the major collectors of that day are either retired or deceased. Ex: John J. Ford, Jr. Collection.
