    Description

    ONE OF THE FINEST MINT EXAMPLES OF THE DIFFICULT $1

    $1 Black (311), centered with near-mathematical precision amid large symmetrical margins with rich, dark color, enhanced by the razor sharp impression, and pristine, never hinged original gum; Post Office fresh and Extremely Fine to Superb. Scott $2,100.

    SMQ $10,200


    Expertization: PSE Encapsulated graded 95

    A MAGNIFICENT EXAMPLE OF THE VERY DIFFICULT HIGH VALUE.

    The $1 1902-3 issue normally has small margins and centering is often not the best. This example is the antithesis of the norm. The centering is virtually perfect and the margins, compared to virtually all we've seen, are bordering on Jumbo. Given the stamp's other qualities, the intense color, pristine original gum, the full even perforations- this example is certainly at the top of its grade and may well deserve one grade higher.
