    Milton 2E5R.2b 5¢ Second Issue Negative Essay PMG Choice About Unc 58. Negative Essays had been just about the hardest category of note to obtain from the 1960's through 1997. From 1997 through 2007 all of the major fractional collections formed over a 40+ year period came on the market. Over the last five years, it has been rather easy to acquire one of these great notes. If the history of collecting has taught us anything, it is to buy when material is all over the market and sell when it has been absorbed. What it fails to tell us is how to time this. What we know for sure is that this is a glut era for great fractional notes. Here is "just another" negative essay that collectors would have killed for in the 1970's.
