    Description

    Fr. 1285 25c Second Issue Choice New. An utterly original example of this tougher variety with "A-18-63" surcharges on the back, which on this example are about as clear and well defined as one can possibly obtain. The bronzing is bright with bold ink colors and lovely print quality. But for the top margin this note would easily reach the gem grade. The Choice New example in the O'Mara sale realized $750 on an estimate of $400-up which just goes to show how difficult it is to locate nice examples of this variety.
