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 plate. The example offered here is one of the rare exceptions.

Ex Gorham. With 1998 P.F. certificate.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. ONE OF THE FINEST 12-CENT 1857 REPRINTS EXTANT.

The narrow spaces between stamps on the 12c 1857 Reprint plate allowed almost no room for large 12-gauge perforations, and the Reprints were generally perforated into parts of the design. Examples such as this, with the framelines complete on all four sides, are extremely rare.

With 2004 P.F. and 2012 P.S.E. certificates (XF 90 Jumbo; SMQ $10,500.00). This is the highest grade awarded by P.S.E. and it is shared by no others
