Sale 1262, Lot 672, 1851-60 Issues3c Rose, Ty. I (25). Original gum, lightly hinged, rich color and choice centering, perfs to touched as always but all four framelines clearly visible, most recent P.S.E. certificate notes "soiling spots on the face" which we feel is unduly harsh

VERY FINE. THE 1857 PERFORATED 3-CENT TYPE I IS RARELY FOUND IN CENTERED ORIGINAL-GUM CONDITION.

This stamp is extremely difficult to obtain with superior margins and centering, due to the narrow spacing on the plate, which was laid out prior to the introduction of perforations in 1857. Finding such an example in unused condition with original gum adds considerably to the difficulty. Even superb copies will show perforations impinging on at least one frameline.

Ex Curtis. 1989 P.F. certificate no longer accompanies. With 2014 P.F. certificate (VF-XF 85). With 2022 P.S.E. certificate.
