EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB MINT NEVER-HINGED PLATE NUMBER EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 2-CENT TYPE VII IMPERFORATE, GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E.
Most Type VII stamps were used by private vending and affixing-machine companies. However, unlike Scott 314A and 482A, a small supply of the imperforate 2c Type VII stamps did reach the public.
With 1976 P.F. and 2002 P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98; SMQ $5,750.00). Only one grades higher (at 100) and only two others share this desirable grade.
