    Fr. 1299 25c Third Issue Very Choice New. An incredible example of this rare Solid Surcharge Fiber Paper Fessenden. We've handled only three 1299's as nice as this one, two other Very Choice News and a single Gem. The Gem, which we sold in January of 01, realized $4675, and the Very Choice, which we sold in January of 2000, realized $2365. In quality, this piece falls right between those two, and it's likely that the price will too. The note is beautifully centered among four large margins on the face, and the back, although it is a tad high, is well clear of the edge. The paper color is a drop less than fully bright, but certainly acceptable by Fiber Paper standards. A rare note in a grade not likely to be exceeded.
