The first perforated 10c stamps produced by Toppan Carpenter from sheets printed from Plate 1 are notorious among collectors for their poor centering. The example offered here, with unusually wide margins on all sides, bright color, a face-free cancel and in pristine condition, is the finest we have ever encountered.

Ex "Natalee Grace". With 1999 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98; SMQ $12,000.00). This is the highest grade awarded and the only example to achieve this grade.
