    Superb Gem Fiber Paper 5¢

    Fr. 1235 5¢ Second Issue Superb Gem New. This is tied with only one other example as the finest 1235 that we have seen or handled. In our 40+ sales (as well as private treaty), we have seen only one other Superb 1235. That was in January of 2001 when, on a much weaker market, we auctioned the only other one we've ever seen for over $2100. This piece has broad, even margins, ideal back centering, pristine paper surfaces and every other positive attribute that any collector could ever desire. Simply spectacular.
