FINE. A RARE SOUND EXAMPLE OF THE ONE-CENT 1861 ISSUE ON VERTICALLY LAID PAPER.
Don Evans notes in his 1c book (p. 37) that this is known to have been printed on both horizontally and vertically laid paper. He notes that examples are somewhat difficult to identify by casual observation. He also notes that horizontally laid paper seems to be scarcer than vertically laid (he was aware of only two horizontal), but our experience and an examination of the records of The Philatelic Foundation indicate that both are equally scarce. They are also usually seen with faults.
With 2006 P.F. certificate
