EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A BRILLIANT MINT NEVER HINGED PAIR OF THE 2-CENT TYPE VII IMPERFORATE.

Most Type VII stamps were used by private vending and affixing-machine companies. However, unlike Scott 314A and 482A, a small supply of the imperforate 2c Type VII stamps did reach the public.

With 1996 P.F. certificate for plate block. Mint N.H. pairs do not come to market very often -- we have offered only four others since our 2009 Whitman sale.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST OF THE FEW EXTANT MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLES OF THIS MAJOR RARITY. PROBABLY FEWER THAN 20 ARE KNOWN IN ANY KIND OF UNUSED CONDITION.

A small quantity of 1c Rotary Press stamps was perforated 11 at the end of 1922, using remainder sheets from the earlier printings that were normally perforated in 10 gauge or 10/11 compound gauge. Its existence as a Perf 11 variety was discovered in 1936, and the stamp received its Scott catalogue listing in 1938. Most of the recorded copies of Scott 544 are off-center or have been damaged -- the result of poor production standards and poor handling.

Ex Zoellner. With 1991, 1998 and 2018 P.F. certificates
