    Impressive Quality Solid Surcharge Fessenden

    Fr. 1299 25¢ Third Issue PMG Choice Uncirculated 63.
    This solid-surcharge Fessenden is a rare and perennially popular type. Most examples on this heavy fiber paper are aged, poorly printed, or damaged. The paper itself splits very easily, and its rough surface was less than ideal for receiving the ink or bronzing. This particular example is a conspicuous exception, with absolutely none of the problems that are normally encountered. It has wide margins and the look of a better grade. Only a trio of examples have been graded finer at PMG. Any uncirculated Fr. 1299 in a comment-free holder represents an opportunity not to be missed.
