    Fr. 1329SP Wide Margin Face - Tied for the Finest of Only Four Known

    Fr. 1329SP 50¢ Third Issue Spinner Wide Margin Face PMG About Uncirculated 55 EPQ.
    "Only four examples are known of this Allison-Spinner signed Wide Margin Spinner face, all of which grade About New: the Gengerke piece, which we sold as lot 216 in 1995 that realized over $9,000; the Friedberg piece, from our January 1997 Sale; the Stack's May 2004 piece, which realized $10,925; and this piece, the ex-O'Mara example. No Collection of Wide Margin Specimens can be considered complete without this number, and this piece is tied (albeit a four-way tie) for finest known. The important Allison and Spinner hand autographs are dark and clean. PMG has designated this note with their Exceptional Paper Quality comment. With the other three pieces tied up in long-term holdings, this may be the last opportunity to acquire this number for many years to come." That was the description when we last sold this note in September of 2009. At that time, it realized $11,500, a number that could easily be equaled this evening.
