Sale Number 1010, Lot Number 101, Jamestown Issue1c-5c Jamestown (328-330), 1c-5c Jamestown (328-330)1c-5c Jamestown (328-330). Panes of 100 of each with double imprint, plate nos. and arrows at top, selvage at left and 1c and 2c with selvage at right, 2c and 5c Mint N.H. (2c with tiny adherence on one stamp on one plate block), rich colors, 1c with few perfs mostly in selvage sensibly reinforced by hinges, 2c few tiny natural gum skips

FINE-VERY FINE. A RARE COMPLETE SET OF PANES OF 100 OF THE 1907 JAMESTOWN ISSUE.

This set amply demonstrates the narrow spacing between stamps, which led to difficulties in perforating and a dearth of centered copies. For some reason, every pane of the 5c that we have encountered does not have the selvage at right.. Scott Retail as 2c and 5c Mint N.H. plate blocks and singles and 1c as all hinged (which they are not)
