EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB AND SPECTACULAR USED STRIP OF THE 1851 IMPERFORATE ONE-CENT TYPE IV.

Philatelists who study and collect multiples will appreciate the extreme rarity of this used strip of the 1851 1c Type IV. Perhaps because the flanking stamps at left and right are equals to the spectacular center stamp, this strip was not cut to furnish a Jumbo single. Combining the enormous margins with brilliant color and the sharpest strikes of the New York City datestamp we have encountered, this strip offers everything to the condition-conscious collector.

Ex Vogel. With 2007 P.S.E. certificate.
