    Single Signature Fr. 1328

    Fr. 1328 50¢ Spinner Signature Only Third Issue Spinner PCGS Fine 12.
    This is only the third, definitely genuine example of this important error that we know of. We sold both other pieces, the first in Milt Friedberg's collection in January of 1997. The second, which is a far higher grade, on three separate occasions. On the most recent of those occasions in 2006 we used the following description... "Signed by Spinner only. A very rare error, this was once part of the Tom O'Mara Collection, acquired as part of his purchase of the Doug Hales Collection. The note has all of its original embossing and is strictly Uncirculated but the paper shows some aging at the edges. We are a little unsure of the census for errors of this type, and realize that 'darn rare' is an inexact term, but it certainly applies here. The only other example we ever handled was the Milt Friedberg piece, which realized $4,400 on an estimate of $3,000-up nine years ago. In the O'Mara collection this piece was overlooked at just under $2,500. In September 2006 when this note was offered again, it realized $3,450 on an estimate of $3500-up." This piece, though well circulated and new to the market, is a flawless Fine and genuine beyond any shadow of a doubt.
