Many of the unused singles have disturbed gum or no gum, and/or are off center to top or top left.

VERY FINE APPEARING EXAMPLE OF THE 4-CENT PAN-AMERICAN INVERT.

The 4c Pan-American Invert was a special printing and not regularly issued. Examples were distributed through two official channels, and the gum on the majority of stamps without "Specimen" overprint was disturbed due to its removal from mounting paper. In fact, many of these stamps are thinned or have seriously disturbed gum.

With 1995 P.S.E. certificate.
