VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A BEAUTIFUL AND REMARKABLY FRESH EXAMPLE OF THE 3-CENT 1857 REPRINT.

The Continental Bank Note Company made a new plate for the 3c 1857 Reprint, consisting of 100 subjects. 10,000 stamps were printed (100 impressions). 479 of the 3c were sold, and the remaining 9,521 were destroyed on July 23, 1884, by order of the Postmaster General.

A review using Power Search shows that virtually all are off center to some degree, and many have perforations touching on one or more sides due to the narrow spacing on the original plate.

With 1976 P.F. certificate
