Costa Rica (struck in Birmingham, England), specimen 25 centavos, 1889/99 HEATON-BIRMM, NGC SP 66, ex-Richard Stuart (stated on label), finest and only example in NGC census. KM-130. Frosty white and gleaming with brightness, without a single blemish, almost prooflike in appearance and clearly well protected for the past 130 years! Interestingly, though this issue is acknowledged as an 1889/99 overdate, the first 8 is also punched over a 9, hence 1889/999 is a more accurate description. NGC #4435025-004.
