I have been hoping to pick up a Specimen for some time (a couple years). I periodically look at the auctions on ebay and watch the prices on those I am interested in. This beauty came up last week along with a couple others from the same seller. The one I missed out on was a 2nd issue wide margin five cent removed from a shield. It graded AU and was noted as glue residue. The wide margin notes are harder to find at a decent price. I really went after this note just because of condition and centering really caught my eye. I won this by $3 with 3 seconds to go. The other late bidder doesn't know how close they came to winning. The price doubled with those last two bids but I feel I still picked it up at a very reasonable price. Hope you like it!
Any guesses on how this graded?
