    Single-Signature Ten Cent Third Issue Wide Margin Specimen

    Fr. 1253SP Milton 3P10F.1a Ten Cent Third Issue Single-Signature Face Choice About New. Acquired by Tom in last May's Stack's Auction for $6,600. This is the only example of its type that we know of, and it may well remain unique forever. The handwritten words "Register" and "Treasurer" were properly written on the note, and Spinner has signed as treasurer but the area intended for the Colby (Fr. 1253SP) or Jefferies (Fr. 1254SP) signature remains blank. The note has a lightly pencilled "166A" at the upper left of the blank back and two small pieces of paper adhered to the back. It is well embossed and strictly uncirculated but it has picked up one light, broad corner fold. Another truly great item from Tom O'Mara's definitive collection.
