    Fr. 1286 25¢ Second Issue Inverted "S" PCGS Gem New 66.
    This 1286 Inverted "S" variety comes both on Regular Issue and Experimental notes. The Experimental notes are quite a bit more common; there are only about a half-dozen known examples of this regular issue Inverted "S," and this is the finest graded at either service and certainly the finest we have ever seen. The note appears to have been cut from a sheet for the sole purpose of preserving the margins as they are incredibly broad all the way around. The back centering is also ideal and the all important inverted "S" is razor sharp. On most other known examples it is identifiable by its shape but the actual details are indistinct. On this note, all of the details are full and clearly visible.
