Sale Number 976, Lot Number 1891, 1902-08 Issues (Scott 314A-322)4c Brown, Imperforate, Schermack Ty. III Private Perforation (314A), 4c Brown, Imperforate, Schermack Ty. III Private Perforation (314A)4c Brown, Imperforate, Schermack Ty. III Private Perforation (314A). Large margins to well clear at left with full Schermack perforations on both sides, deep rich color, usual wavy-line cancel

FRESH AND FINE. A RARE SOUND EXAMPLE OF THE 4-CENT 1908 IMPERFORATE WITH SCHERMACK PERFORATIONS, SCOTT 314A. ONLY 31 USED SINGLES ARE CONTAINED IN OUR CENSUS, AND FEW HAVE THE SCHERMACK PERFORATIONS ON BOTH SIDES.

Our recently-completed census of Scott 314A incorporates the records of the Philatelic Foundation, the Levi records (which represents over 40 years of auction sales) and our own computerized sales history. The census reveals a startling fact -- there are only 31 used singles (two on piece), a used strip of three and three covers (one of which contains a strip of three), for a total of 39 used stamps. Our previous assumption was that this number was much higher. Of these, only 18 show Schermack perforations on both sides and of these only 11 are sound.

With 1967 P.F. certificate. Acquired by the current owner in our 1969 Rarities sale.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS STUNNING MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 2-CENT SHIELD ISSUE HAS BEEN GRADED GEM 100 JUMBO BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE POSSIBLE AND ONLY ONE OTHER HAS ACHIEVED THIS ULTIMATE GRADE.

Despite its modest catalogue value and large population, the 2c Shield Issue is extremely difficult to find with perfect centering and with wide margins. The four enormous and perfectly balanced margins of this Mint N.H. stamp place it in a totally different category.

With 2007 P.S.E. certificate (Gem 100 Jumbo; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 98, SMQ $960.00 as 98). This is the highest grade possible and only one other has achieved this grade.
