    A STUNNING JUMBO MINT SINGLE- THE HIGHEST GRADED TO DATE

    5c Blue, Perf. 10 (403), spectacular centering within absolutely enormous margins with intense color, bright paper and sparkling, never hinged original gum; a truly Superb Jumbo. Scott $425.

    SMQ $8,300 for a normal 98


    Expertization: PSE Encapsulated graded 98J

    A SUPERB, PERFECTLY BALANCED JUMBO MARGIN SINGLE.

    The 5¢ Pan Pacific Perf 10 is surprisingly elusive in the highest quality. The stamp does not usually come well centered and often, thanks to the large perforation holes, a few of the chunky perforations are short. A perfectly centered jumbo-margined never hinged single is a joy to behold and exceedingly rare. Of the nearly 100 graded never hinged singles, only two have earned the 98J grading, with none higher. The perfect stamp for an award winning set.

    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.
