    Fr. 1247 10c Second Issue Superb Gem New. This is simply an astounding example of this very scarce variety which is undoubtedly one of the nicest ones in existence. There are four hulking margins with the full plate impression clearly evident along the top border. The print quality is sharp with the bronze overprint well centered. Crisp and crackling paper surfaces are complemented by superior embossing and razor sharp "1-18-63" surcharges on the back. There is a light pressbed streak along the top border visible primarily from the back. The O'Mara example realized almost $750 total and this note is clearly the superior of that one. If you have any intention of taking home this prize you need to step up to the plate to add this to your collection.
