    Fr. 1249 Milton 2R10.7 10¢ Second Issue Gem New. From our 1995 sale of the Gengerke Collection, with its original photo certificate included. It was described there, "A truly magnificent Fiber Paper Ten. The printing is as sharp as on any normal-paper note, which is nearly unheard of as this rough fiber paper often lead to flaky looking inking. Perfectly centered among four large margins, this is easily the nicest Fr. 1249 we have ever seen. The 'T-1-18-63' surcharge on the back is calligraphy-sharp. What appears from the back to be a center fold is in reality a fold in the paper from before the face and back were joined. Second Issue Fiber Paper notes were printed on two very thin pieces of paper glued together prior to printing. This explains why the center fold exists only on the back." A decade later, we've seen only one Fr. 1249 comparable to this piece. It's a scarce number in all grades, and very rare in Gem. We've sold 31 Friedberg 1249's (including repeats), and only two other Gems.
