    Fr. 1235 5c Second Issue Gem New. An extraordinarily nice example of this scarce one-number type, and one of the very few that we have seen that makes the Gem grade. The note is beautifully margined all the way around, with near-perfect centering on both sides. All that prevents the Superb grade, which is unheard of for this number, are some extremely light age spots in the wide bottom margin. We've handled an awful lot of Fractional over the past 30 years, and this is one of the best two of three Fr. 1235's that we have had the pleasure of examining. It's been off the market since it was purchased by our consignor in 1976.
