    Description

    Fr. 1327 Milton 3R50.16c 50¢ Third Issue Spinner Superb Gem New. Another essentially flawless Red Back Spinner from this breathtaking collection. The note has the appearance of a piece that was printed earlier today. An incredible statement when one considers the fragile nature of these notes. Virtually any exposure to light over the past 140 years would harm the color. Moisture would darken the bronze, air would age the paper, and pressure would ruin the embossing. Add to that all the misfortunes that could so easily occur to the paper itself. This piece is free of even the tiniest bumps, marks or handling indications. When one considers that for the first 60 or so years of its life, the note's entire value had been its 50¢ redemption, its survival chances in pristine condition were extraordinarily minimal. That a single collector could acquire such a large number of pristine pieces is not just a matter of money (although it helps), but it's a tribute to Tom's good eye, patience and tenacity.
