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. Only 489 were sold, and examples such as this, with the framelines complete on all four sides, are extremely rare.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. AN EXTRAORDINARY STAMP WITH MARGINS AND CENTERING RARELY FOUND AMONG 24-CENT 1857 REPRINTS.

The Continental Bank Note Company reprinted the 24c stamp from the original plate of 200 subjects. 10,000 were printed (50 impressions). Only 479 were sold; the remaining 9,521 were destroyed on July 23, 1884, by order of the Postmaster General. Due to the narrow spacing between subjects, many have perforations touching the design at either top or bottom. The example offered here is a rare exception and one of the finest we have encountered.
