EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB MINT NEVER-HINGED JOINT LINE PAIR OF SCOTT 453.

The Type I rotary press stamps were produced using the same master dies as had been used for flat plate printings. However, due to the curve of the plate to fit the rotary press, the impressions lacked some of the details of the flat plate printings. New dies were made with strengthened lines, resulting in the Type II stamps. The web-fed rotary printing and perforating process made it very difficult for well-centered examples to be consistently produced.

Ex "Scarsdale" and "Hanover". With 1997 P.S.E. and 2006 P.F. certificates
