EXTREMELY FINE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 PERFORATED ONE-CENT TYPE I.
Ex "Vineyard". With 1984, 1999, and 2004 P.F. certificates. With 2008 P.S.E. certificate (OGph, XF 90; SMQ $5,750.00). This is one of only seven unused examples to achieve this grade, with just one higher (Mint N.H. at 95)
FRESH AND FINE. A SCARCE SOUND EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 PERFORATED ONE-CENT TYPE Ia.
Type Ia was produced by only 18 of the 20 bottom-row positions on Plate 4. Although Plate 4 was designed with sufficient space to accommodate perforations, the height of the top row and bottom row positions resulted in the perforations often cutting into the design at either top or bottom. For this reason, stamps from the bottom row of Plate 4 with perforations slightly into the design are still desirable.
With 1975 P.F. certificate
VERY FINE AND CHOICE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 ONE-CENT TYPE II FROM THE TOP ROW OF PLATE FOUR -- SHOWING THE COMPLETE DESIGN AT TOP AND A DOUBLE TRANSFER.
Ashbrook states "The lone double transfer, 10R4, is a very rare stamp, in fact, it ranks among the rarest of double transfers of the one cent 1851-1857. I have seen very few copies, and only one pair, containing 10R4." (Neinken book, p. 270).
Ex Zoellner. With 1981 P.F. certificate stating "sweated o.g." -- a totally unwarranted comment about the pristine original gum on this stamp. Scott Retail for Position 10R4
FINE APPEARANCE. AN ATTRACTIVE AND SCARCE LARGE MULTIPLE OF THE 1857 ONE-CENT TYPE V.
