EXTREMELY FINE. THIS IS SURELY THE FINEST EXAMPLE OF THE 24-CENT 1857 REPRINT.

The perforations of most 24c 1857 Reprint stamps touch the design. The perforations on this example are well clear of the design on all four sides. This is by far the largest example of this issue we have handled, and it could be the largest 1857 Reprint extant -- only the ex-Zoellner 3c Reprint is a rival.

Only 479 issued. Ex Welling and Floyd. With 1985 and 2002 P.F. certificates
