    Very Scarce Fr. 1248 with "0-63" Surcharges

    Fr. 1248 10¢ Second Issue PMG Extremely Fine 40.
    "A wonderfully bright, strictly original Fr. 1248 that is way off center on the face, as many of the examples are. This one is so far off that it very nearly qualifies as an error, as the entire left and bottom margins are present, including small sections of three of its neighbor notes. The back is also off center, though not so dramatically. The "O" and the "63" back surcharges are bright and clear. A rare number that is always eagerly sought when one appears." This was our description when we sold this note for $1,145.63 in our 2015 Long Beach sale, a time that pretty much represented the bottom of today's market. Before that, also in 2015, we sold another, grading PMG AU 55 Net, for $2,820. With this note being a higher grade and residing in a comment-free holder, we would expect a healthy four-figure price.
