    Milton 2E5F.3 5¢ Second Issue Essay Vertical Pair PMG Uncirculated 62 EPQ. Apparently Lot 941 from the S.H.&H. Chapman February 15, 1904 sale of the Wilcox Collection. To our best knowledge, only two of these pairs exist: this one, which is missing the top portion of the top note, and an identical pair, with a full top note that is missing the bottom half of the bottom note. Printed on hard, thin yellow paper with the finalized face design, lacking only the bronze oval. The back is blank. The Five Cent denomination is the rarest of the Second Issue Experimentals.
