    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.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
