EXTREMELY FINE GEM PAIR OF THE 1857 PERFORATED ONE-CENT TYPE III. EXCEEDINGLY RARE IN SUCH PERFECT CONDITION.

Although Plate 4 was designed with the introduction of perforations in mind, it was still difficult to apply the perforations without impinging on the designs. An examination of Plate 4 stamps reveals that many have perforations either touching or cutting into the design. This Plate 4 Type III-IIIa pair, with near-perfect centering that clearly displays the characteristics of the types, should be considered a condition rarity. We doubt that a finer pair exists.

With 2002 P.F. certificate

EXTREMELY FINE. THE TYPE IIIA RARELY SHOWS ALL OF THE DEFINING CHARACTERISTICS OF THE TYPE.

The layout of the plate left little room for perforations. Most examples of Type IIIa are poorly centered, especially top-to-bottom. The example offered here, showing clear and unmistakable characteristics of the type, is a condition rarity.
