EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 ONE-CENT PERFORATED TYPE IV. A BEAUTIFUL STAMP IN EVERY RESPECT.

Most examples of this issue have perforations either touching or into the recut lines. The example offered here, with intact recut lines at top and bottom, is exceedingly rare. It also has uncharacteristically deep color and detailed impression for a Plate 1 Late printing.

With 1997 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (XF 90; SMQ $1,900.00). Only three have graded higher to date, a statistic that has not changed in three years.
