    THE FINEST GRADED NEVER HINGED $1 1915 PERF 10

    $1 Violet Black (460), absolutely perfectly centered with large margins, an intense, prooflike impression and immaculate never hinged original gum; Post Office fresh and truly Superb. Scott $1,900.

    SMQ $18,800


    Expertization: PSE Encapsulated graded 98

    AN EXTRAORDINARY EXAMPLE OF THIS KEY 20TH CENTURY DOLLAR-VALUE; OF THE MORE THAN 70 MINT 460's GRADED BY PSE TO DATE, NOT ONE HAS BEEN GRADED HIGHER THAN THIS SUPERB 98.

    What was said for the 50¢ #440 can be duplicated for the $1 #460. Both of the $1 perf 10's, watermarked (#460 this stamp) and unwatermarked (#478) are quite scarce and nearly impossible to find in perfectly centered, never hinged condition. Neither has yet to have a mint single score 100 and there are only six 98's between them. If you are trying to assemble the ultimate Washington Franklin sets, this stamp is a must have.

    The resulting auction of my property overwhelmed me. I want to thank Tom Slater and the Heritage team for a very satisfactory experience and profitable result with my historical consignment.
