    Fr. 1285 25¢ Second Issue PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ.
    Beautifully margined, bright, and attractive, with the back centering fully the equal of the beautifully centered face. This is an unusually nice example of a note that is challenging to find in top grade. The "A" in the surcharge is quite clearly printed. That is both important and unusual as it is often difficult to attribute this number. The "A" of the Fr. 1285 is easily confused with the "S" of the Fr. 1286 on most examples. Not so on this pretty piece. This note stands alone at the top of the PMG census with nothing higher, and only a single 65 below it.
