III (314A)4c Brown, Imperforate, Schermack Ty. III (314A). Large margins to well clear at left with Schermack perforations on both sides, deep rich color, usual wavy-line cancel, thinned at right and barely noticeable light vertical crease

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 4-CENT 1908 IMPERFORATE WITH SCHERMACK PERFORATIONS, SCOTT 314A. ONLY 31 USED SINGLES ARE CONTAINED IN OUR CENSUS.

Our recently updated census of Scott 314A incorporates the records of the Philatelic Foundation, the Levi records (which represents over 40 years of auction sales) and our own computerized sales history. The census reveals a startling fact -- there are only 31 used singles (two on piece), a used strip of three and three covers (one of which contains a strip of three), for a total of 39 used stamps. Our previous assumption was that this number was much higher.

From the Belasco collection. With 1962 and 2010 P.F. certificates
