II (7), large margins to just touched at top, rich color, light strikes of grid cancels, left stamp small flaw at bottom left, right stamp (99R2) insignificant corner crease at top right not mentioned on accompanying certificate

A MAGNIFICENT STRIP OF THREE CONTAINING AN EXTREMELY FINE APPEARING EXAMPLE OF THE RARE AND DESIRABLE POSITION 99R2 -- THE MOST PROMINENT EXAMPLE OF TYPE III -- SHOWING WIDE BREAKS AT TOP AND BOTTOM.

Type III is defined by breaks in the outer lines at both top and bottom. Many Type III stamps have breaks that were created or enlarged by plate wear. Since the wear occurred over a period of time, a majority of stamps of this type (both unused and used) have small breaks in at least one line. The most notable exception is Position 99R2. According to the Neinken book, "The 99R2 stamp is a fresh entry, that was short transferred both at top and bottom, over an original entry that had been erased... The reason that 99R2 is the finest example of Type III is because of its very short transfer at top and at bottom, giving us the wide breaks in these lines." (p. 184).

With 1980 P.F. certificate. Scott Retail as No. 7 pair and single No. 8 (99R2)
