    Fr. 1283SP 25c Wide Margin Back Specimen Second Issue Gem New.From the O'Mara collection where it was described as follows: "This note has the entire cutting guide at the top and over half of the cutting guide at the right. The note is cut on a bit of a bias, which allows the entire plate number 8 to appear at the upper-right corner. This extra 25c back was clearly acquired by Tom for this plate number, as they are rarely seen on Wide Margin Specimens." We thought this was an intriguing note then and so did our consignor who paid a bit over $200 for it. That was almost a year ago and the market for wide margin specimens has advanced well beyond that stage.
