    Milton 3E25F.3 25¢ Third Issue PCGS Banknote Choice About Uncirculated 58.
    A flawless piece on pure white paper, this example lacks the heavy fiber that is usually seen on these ultra-rare Fessenden Experimentals. This piece is broadly margined and beautifully bright. It has the very rare five-hole cancellation that utilizes both half-moon cancels and round cancels. It's of particular interest due to the use of the standard half-moon cancels and purple "SPECIMEN" as well as the three circles. Research has shown that the half-moon cancels have been traced to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, but the round cancels have yet to be traced. This great-looking example is broadly margined, with deep original embossing, and should command the attention of all serious Fractional specialists. PCGS has commented "Minor Stains," and they are indeed quite minor.
