Fr. 1248 10¢ Second Issue PMG Choice Extremely Fine 45 EPQ. ...

À propos de l'objet

Only about two dozen or so examples of this Friedberg number are known and they always attract considerable attention when one appears at auction. This one, as is the case with most known pieces, is somewhat off center. The left margin is tight and the back design almost touches the edge at the right. The surcharges are in the normal, plain font. Milt Friedberg has traced the earliest appearance of an "O-63" note back to the Harlan P. Smith sale of the R.C. Davis Collection on January 20, 1890. Smith has long been suspected of "manufacturing" the Fr. 1310a's, and some suspicion must fall on him for the possibility of his also having created these Fr. 1248's. All but one of the known Fr. 1248's have this very plain "O-63" surcharge. The one exception has more ornate surcharges, and is likely the only Bureau-produced Fr. 1248. In any event, these notes have always been considered part of a Fractional set. HID07601242017
