Plate 12, C Relief, perfect centering which clearly shows the characteristics of the type, deep rich color, razor-sharp impression on pristine paper, pretty strike of red "New York Paid City Delivery" carrier circular datestamp

EXTREMELY FINE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 PERFORATED ONE-CENT TYPE I. THE RED NEW YORK CITY CARRIER DATESTAMP ADDS EXTRA EYE APPEAL.

The defining characteristic of Type I is that the entire design is printed, including the scrolls and plumes at bottom. Type I perforated stamps are only known from certain positions on Plate 12. Due to the narrow spacing between perforations and difficulties of production, this type is usually found with part of the design cut off by the perforations. The example offered here, with bright color, a vivid red carrier cancel and with the design characteristics clearly visible, is a true condition rarity.

Ex Dr. Hinrichs and featured on the front cover of our Sale 1166. With 1999 and 2017 P.F. certificates
