    Fr. 1286 Inverted Back Engraving Strip of Three

    Fr. 1286 Milton 2R25.3h 25¢ Second Issue Vertical Strip of Three Inverted Back Engraving PCGS Apparent Choice About New 55.
    This amazing strip of three notes was new to the census of Inverts when it surfaced as lot 212 in John Jay Ford XI. No other Second Issue multiples with only the back engraving inverted are known, and there are very few single Second Issue 25¢ notes with the back engraving inverted known. The strip is bright with reflective bronzing and a nice purple back. It was given an Apparent grade due to some minor edge damage and a small split between the bottom two notes. An amazing opportunity to add a Fractional Currency Invert Multiple to your collection. When we first offered this in our 2016 FUN sale, it realized $1,500.
