    Likely Unique Fr. 1233 Inverted Back Engraving

    Fr. 1233 Milton 2R5.2i 5¢ Second Issue Inverted Back Engraving PCGS Choice About New 55.
    Missing from the Friedberg collection, this note has the back engraving inverted but the surcharges in normal position. Unique when the Milton Encyclopedia was published, this was lot 16165 in the O'Mara Auction. No new examples have been found, making this truly a one time opportunity. When we most recently auctioned this note at our FUN 2016 sale, it realized $1700.
