EXTREMELY FINE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE PERFORATED ONE-CENT TYPE II IN THE FRESHEST STATE OF PRESERVATION. A BEAUTIFUL STAMP IN EVERY RESPECT.

When perforations were introduced in 1857, the plates used to print stamps at Toppan, Carpenter & Co. were laid out with narrow spaces between the subjects, because no thought had been given to the concept of perforation holes between the stamps. The imperforate sheets of 1c stamps on hand were printed from Plates 1 Late, 2 and 4, and the perforations on those stamps rarely clear the design all around. We have offered only four other unduplicated Mint N.H. examples of the perforated Ty. II in nearly 20 years.

With 1990, 2002 and 2012 P.F. certificates (VF-XF 85). Scott Retail as hinged
