VERY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL AND SOUND EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 1857 ONE-CENT PERFORATED 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.

Signed Raymond Weill. With 2010 P.F. certificate
