    Description

    Fr. 1248 Milton 2R10.5 10¢ Second Issue Choice New. A beautifully printed example of this classic Fractional rarity. The surcharges are in the normal, plain font. Milt Friedberg has traced the earliest appearance of an "O-63" note back to the Harlan P. Smith sale of the R.C. Davis Collection on January 20, 1890. Davis has long been suspected of "manufacturing" the Fr. 1310a's, and some suspicion must fall on him for the possibility of his also having created these Fr. 1248's. All but one of the known Fr. 1248's have this very plain "O-63" surcharge. The one exception has more ornate surcharges, and is likely the only Bureau-produced Fr. 1248. In any event, these notes have always been considered part of the set, and a particularly nice one such as this example should easily realize . . .
