EXTREMELY FINE. A SELECT QUALITY USED EXAMPLE OF THE IMPREFORATE ONE-CENT TYPE III.

Type III is defined by breaks in the outer lines at both top and bottom. Many Type III stamps have breaks that were created or enlarged by plate wear. Since the wear occurred over a period of time, the majority of stamps of this type (both unused and used) has small breaks in at least one line. This stamp is notable for its wide breaks at both top and bottom.

With 2005 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90; SMQ $4,750.00)
