    Fr. 1292 25c Third Issue Gem New. From the O'Mara collection where our knowledgeable consignor paid just over $400 for this beauty and felt he was practically stealing it. This is the "a" on face variety with the red brick back which it must be stated unequivocally is much scarcer than the Fr. 1291, especially in this high grade. The margins are broad and even with crisp and crackling fresh paper and the kind of cavernous embossing that can be found on well struck Fessenden notes. If the back design were just a little better centered this would be a superb gem for certain.
