    Fr. 1339SP 50¢ Third Issue Spinner Type II About New. We've sold this note four times before. Initially in our first sale in November 1990, again in our June 1994, and January 2000 sales, where it was described: "Very rare with less than fifteen known specimens of this type. This example grades About New due to a single light corner fold. It is otherwise Choice. The paper this note is printed on has large raised bumps on both sides. This is the third time that we have seen this paper and we have seen it only on Fr. 1339 backs. It clearly was this way when it was printed and the bumps are not damage or use related." In our June 1994 sale, it realized $528, and on the current active Fractional market we would not be at all surprised to see this fascinating and important note more than triple its price of a decade and a half ago.
