EXTREMELY FINE. A STUNNING USED INTERPANE MARGIN AND CENTERLINE EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 ONE-CENT TYPE III.

Only six positions along the two adjacent vertical rows of Plate 4 can possibly be Type III; therefore, centerline examples are rare (especially since the selvage was often removed). Accompanied by small plating chart showing the distinctive marks on this position.

Ex Wagshal. With 2011 P.F. certificate
