Category — "Houdon" 3c 1851-57: Type I Perforated (Scott 25)
VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A RARE SOUND ORIGINAL-GUM BLOCK OF FOUR OF THE 1857 3-CENT TYPE I.
The distinctive characteristic of Type I -- complete outer framelines -- is often difficult to see on a single copy due to the narrow spacing on the plate. The framelines are easily seen on this block.
