EXTREMELY FINE. A LOVELY EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 ONE-CENT TYPE III, WHICH CLEARLY SHOWS THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE TYPE.

Perforated 1c Type III stamps usually come from Plate 4. Only a few positions on Plate 12 developed broken lines at top and bottom as a result of plate wear. This stamp, with the relief dot at the left of the oval, definitely comes from Plate 12, but we are unable to plate it precisely.

With 2007 P.F. certificate (XF 90)
