    Unique Friedberg 1235 Invert

    Fr. 1235 5¢ Second Issue Inverted Back Surcharge PMG Uncirculated 62.
    This handsome Invert is fully Uncirculated, though with a touch too much handling at the edges to qualify for the Choice grade. The paper is bright, and the bronze retains its original full color. We've researched this Invert carefully, and found not a single example of any 1235 Invert. We used our phone-a-friend option (thank you, Benny) and had it researched a second time to find the same results. It is not only the only Inverted Surcharge 1235, it is the only 1235 Invert of any of the three possible formats. Had this note appeared on the market in the '80s or '90s, it could possibly have reached the five-figure mark. On today's market, the realization will be considerably below that, but we would certainly expect the note to realize around $4000.
