EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 ONE-CENT TYPE III, GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E. -- PARTICULARLY DESIRABLE WITH THE RED CARRIER DATESTAMP.
Due to the narrow vertical spacing on this plate, stamps are most typically found with the perforations impinging on a portion of the design. The example offered here is centered so that the type characteristics are clearly visible.
With 2011 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $9,750.00). None have graded higher.
