c
Sale Number 1211, Lot Number 301, 1857-60 1¢ to 90¢ Perforated Issues, 1¢ 1857 Type II from the top row of Plate 4 with extraordinary wide-spaced perforations

1¢ Blue, Type II (20), Positions 9-10R4, horizontal pair from the top row of Plate 4, right stamp shows distinctive double transfer, extraordinary wide-spaced perforations, stamps centered to right, used with horizontal pair of 3¢ Dull Red, Type III (26) and cancelled by "New Haven Ct." circular datestamp on folded brown wrapper to New York City

Very Fine and almost certainly a unique use of the 1¢ perforated Type II from the top row of Plate 4 with wide-spaced perforations on a newspaper wrapper.

The wide-spacing perforations occurred infrequently during the perforating of Plate 4, either along the top row (Type II) or bottom row (Type Ia), depending on the direction of the printed sheet as it was run through the perforating machine. The Scott Catalogue footnote after No. 19 (Type Ia) describes this characteristic, but it is not noted after No. 20 from Plate 4.

Ex Louis Grunin and "Sevenoaks."
