FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 4-CENT 1908 IMPERFORATE WITH SCHERMACK PERFORATIONS, SCOTT 314A. ONLY 32 USED SINGLES ARE CONTAINED IN OUR CENSUS.

Our 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 32 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 40 used stamps. Our previous assumption was that this number was much higher.

With 2012 P.F. certificate.
