Scott $750

Expertization: 1985 P.F. Certificate.

This scarce $5 stamp is normally found heavily cancelled as it was most frequently used on parcels. To find one that is lightly cancelled is difficult, but to find a lightly cancelled example that is beautifully centered and incredibly fresh is virtually unheard of. This is a true condition rarity.

Realized $1,300
