    Fr. 1236 Milton 3R5.1 5¢ Third Issue Block of Four Choice About New. An extremely rare Red Back multiple that was previously owned by Maurice Burgett. Burgett always wrote catalog numbers and his cost code in pencil in the back corners of his notes. This note has those pencil writings. These can be erased with ease and without a trace, but most collectors choose to allow them to remain. In any event, Red Back multiples are extremely rare, and this is a very nice one. The About New grade is due solely to the fold between the two pairs of notes, but each of the four notes individually is a broadly margined, fully bright piece with two Gems and two About News.
