VERY FINE AND CHOICE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 24-CENT ISSUE.

Collectors looking for Gem quality stamps (unused and used) from the 1857 perforated issue know that one of the most difficult denominations to obtain is the 24c value. The margins are often narrow, with the design almost always touched (if not in) at top or bottom.
