    Rare Negative Essay 5c in Blue

    Milton 2E5R.2c Negative Essay 5c in Blue Superb Gem New. We have sold the complete 5, 10, 25, and 50 Cent blue Negative Essay set twice before, and it has now been broken up. This return engagement is only of the 5 Cent essay note. These were originally described in our auction of the Friedberg Collection in 1997, where appropriately this 5 Cent was described as, "The impression is exceptionally sharp, and the embossing effect through to the back is amazingly distinct. This was one of Milt's most outstanding items." The rarity still holds true today. A pencilled "208" is found on the back.
