VERY FINE APPEARING EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 1923 ONE-CENT ROTARY PERF 11, SCOTT 544.

A small quantity of 1c Rotary Press stamps was perforated 11 at the end of 1922, using remainder sheets from the earlier printings that were normally perforated in 10 gauge or 11/10 compound gauge. Most of the recorded copies of Scott 544 are off-center or have been damaged--the result of lower production standards and poor handling.
