269   image1c Green, Rotary Perf 11 (544). Rich color, machine cancel, choice centering for this difficult issue

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A BEAUTIFUL SOUND EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 1923 ONE-CENT ROTARY PERF 11, SCOTT 544.

A small quantity of 1c Rotary Press stamps was perforated 11 at the end of 1922, using remainder sheets from the earlier printings that were normally perforated in 10 gauge or 11/10 compound gauge. Most of the recorded copies of Scott 544 are off-center or have been damaged--the result of lower production standards and poor handling.

VERY FINE AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 1923 ONE-CENT ROTARY PERF 11 USED ON A POSTCARD. ONLY NINE POSTCARDS AND FIVE COVERS HAVE BEEN CERTIFIED AS GENUINE BY THE PHILATELIC FOUNDATION. A WONDERFUL EXHIBITION ITEM.

A small quantity of 1c Rotary Press stamps was perforated 11 at the end of 1922, using remainder sheets from the earlier printings that were normally perforated in 10 gauge or 11/10 compound gauge. Its existence as a Perf 11 variety was discovered in 1936, and the stamp received its Scott Catalogue listing in 1938. The earliest documented use is December 21, only eight days prior to the this usage.

273° nh image1c Green, Rotary (545). Mint N.H., radiant color, detailed impression, perfectly centered with Jumbo margins, long and full perforations all around

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS MAY QUITE POSSIBLY BE THE FINEST KNOWN EXAMPLE OF THE 1921 ONE-CENT PERF 11 ROTARY WASTE ISSUE, SCOTT 545. THIS STAMP IS A TRUE CONDITION RARITY, AND HAS BEEN AWARDED THE GRADE OF SUPERB 98 JUMBO BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE ONLY EXAMPLE TO ACHIEVE THIS GRADE, WHICH IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED TO DATE.

By their very nature, rotary press waste stamps are extremely difficult to obtain with such choice centering. The production process was far less precise, resulting in many off-center stamps. The stamps were not meant to be perforated on the flat-plate perforating machines, which were set for a slightly different size of stamp.

Ex Killien. With 1990 and 1999 P.F. certificates. With 2005 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98 Jumbo, unpriced in SMQ, SMQ $10,200.00 as 98). This is the only example to achieve the grade of 98 Jumbo, which is the highest grade awarded to date. Only one has been graded 98, and that stamp is offered in the following lot. (Image)
