Position 99R4, original gum, beautiful deep rich color in a distinctive intense Plate 4 shade, proof-like impression, perfs mostly clear of design showing a large part of the bottom plumes, faint corner creases at top right and bottom left (one ending in a minute tear), accompanying 1978 P.F. certificate notes "slightly soiled" which is nothing more than a small faint toned spot in the "U" of "U.S."

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 PERFORATED ONE-CENT TYPE IA.

Type Ia was produced by only 18 of the 20 bottom-row positions on Plate 4. Although Plate 4 was designed with sufficient space to accommodate perforations, the height of the top row and bottom row positions resulted in the perforations often cutting into the design at either top or bottom. For this reason, stamps from the bottom row of Plate 4 with perforations clear of the design are especially desirable, since the characteristics of the type is complete (Type Ia) or nearly complete (Type Ic) at bottom. The stamp offered here is one of the few well-centered examples with original gum, and its intense color and impression make it one of the most beautiful original-gum copies we have ever seen.

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A RARE SOUND ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 PERFORATED ONE-CENT TYPE IV.

The Plate 1 Late sheets on hand in 1857 were perforated on the new equipment, but the spacing between subjects and Toppan Carpenter's generally poor perforating skills resulted in the majority being off center. Examples of Scott 23 with original gum and this grade of centering are extremely rare. This recut position 9R1L was Type Ib on the early state of the plate.

VERY FINE FOR THIS EXTREMELY RARE USED MULTIPLE OF THE PERFORATED 3-CENT TYPE I 1857 ISSUE.

Until Toppan Carpenter made new 3c plates with wider spaces between stamps to accommodate the perforations, they simply perforated sheets printed from the earlier Type I plates, beginning in early 1857. As this rare used block demonstrates, the narrow (and irregular) spacing was not well-suited for applying perforations.
