    Description

    Fr. 1286a Slate Back 25c Second Issue Choice New. This is one of the best margined examples of this scarce Slate back variety that you are ever likely to find as they are notoriously poorly margined. The back has clear surcharges, the face bronzing is perfectly centered and the all important back design is a deep slate gray, without a hint of purple. There is a touch of handling in the paper and some light discoloration on the back corners which prevents this note from achieving the gem grade. All in all, this is about as pleasing an example of this rare (fewer than 30 known) variety as one will likely ever encounter.
