    25¢ Olier Paper Vertical Pair

    Similar to Milton 2E25F.3a 25¢ Second Issue Olier Paper PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
    This vertical pair of 25¢ Experimentals is from the finished plate. Both are Choice New individually, as is the pair. They are similar to Milton 2E25F.3a as PMG has noted on their holder. The bottom note has a bold star in a circle that is found on a brand of Experimental paper that the Bureau was considering for use. The full watermark has the word "Olier," the date "1860," and the large star in a circle. This pair shows only the star, but the yellow tinted, thin paper is unmistakable. An extreme Fractional rarity. When we last sold this in our 2008 Long Beach sale, it realized $3,220.
