    Description

    Milton 2E50R.4e 50¢ Second Issue Experimental Very Choice New. This and the Friedberg Note are the only two examples we know of. This piece is slightly the superior of the two. The other example realized $880 as lot 1085 of our January 1997 Sale. The note has terrific eye appeal and a charismatic attraction due to its "Which side is up?" enigma. The note has the full bronzing both face and back of the regular issue Fr. 1321, but the back engraving is printed on the same side of the note as the bronze oval, and the large bronze "50" and "R-2-18-63" surcharge appear on the other side. A few examples are known punched and stamped, but free of those cancellations, this fiber-paper experimental is an extreme rarity. This cataloger sold the note to Doug Hales in the early eighties. Then Tom O'Mara acquired it with the purchase of the Hales Collection in 1999. We sold it last May with the O'Mara Collection.
