VERY FINE COMBINATION PAIR OF TYPE III AND IIIa FROM PLATE 4. THIS IS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO FIND WITH ANY TRACE OF THE IMPRINT. THE BOTTOM STAMP IS ESPECIALLY CHOICE.

The Neinken book states, "Stamps from Plate 4 showing part of the imprint are very rare." Looking at the layout of Plate 4 (Neinken book, page 263), the imprint position types are as follows: left pane 31/41L Type IIIa, 51L Type IIIa-III, 61L Type III; right pane 40R Type III, 50/60R Type IIIa, 70R Type III. Therefore, only Positions 61L, 40R and 70R4 are Type III imprint positions (51L is a "swing" position with a smaller break).

With 2011 P.S.E. certificate (VF 80; unpriced as a multiple in SMQ)
