VERY FINE AND CHOICE. AN ATTRACTIVE EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 ONE-CENT PERFORATED TYPE III STAMP WHICH CLEARLY SHOWS THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE TYPE.
Due to narrow spacing on the plate, examples of this type often have the perforations cutting into the outer lines at either top or bottom or both. The example offered here clearly presents the characteristics of the type.

VERY FINE. A REMARKABLE BLOCK OF 15 OF THE 1857 ONE-CENT TYPE Va. THIS IS ONE OF THE LARGEST RECORDED MULTIPLES FROM PLATE 5.
This scarce sub-type, Type Va, comes only from Plate 5. The ornaments at right are almost complete, and they do not have any of the scratches at sides that are seen on the Type V stamps. The largest recorded multiples from Plate 5 are a block of 20, followed by this block of 15. This block is noted on pp. 324-325 of the Neinken book.
Ex Hollowbush. One stamp signed Ashbrook and with his plating notes on two stamps "7R6" and "9R6", made prior to the confirmation that there was no Plate 6.
VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE 1858 5-CENT INDIAN RED.
Our search of old auction catalogues and the records of The Philatelic Foundation and P.S.E. yielded only eleven unused examples of Scott 28A. Of these, the majority are without gum.
With 1959 and 1997 P.F. certificates
