EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. A MARVELOUS USED EXAMPLE OF THIS MAJOR 20TH CENTURY RARITY, AND ONE OF THE WIDEST-MARGINED COPIES IN EXISTENCE.

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 as a result of lower production standards and poor handling. The issue normally comes with much narrower margins at sides. The example offered here, with wide margins all around, is certainly one of the biggest copies in existence.

With 2000 P.F. and 2008 P.S.E. certificates, the former not mentioning the trivial faint corner crease. The latter P.S.E. certificate still grades as a VF-XF 85 (Image)

SIDE STAMPS. THE EXAMPLE OFFERED H4c Yellow Brown, Perf 10 at Bottom (556b). "Johnstown Pa." two-line precancel applied inverted, rich color, wide margins

EXTREMELY FINE. THE 4-CENT MARTHA WASHINGTON IS ONE OF THE RAREST OF ALL PERF 10 AT ONE SIDE STAMPS. THE EXAMPLE OFFERED HERE IS PROBABLY THE BEST-CENTERED EXAMPLE IN EXISTENCE.

Our records of Scott 556b contain only four used examples. Of these, three have precancels, and one shows transitional perfs at top.

With 1993 P.S.E. and 2004 P.F. certificates (Image)

113   2c Carmine, Rotary, Perf 11 (595).> Almost perfectly centered with unusually wide and well-balanced margins all around, brilliant color, machine cancel, Extremely Fine Gem, scarce in such pristine condition,
with 2004 P.F. and 2008 P.S.E. certificate2c Carmine, Rotary, Perf 11 (595). Almost perfectly centered with unusually wide and well-balanced margins all around, brilliant color, machine cancel, Extremely Fine Gem, scarce in such pristine condition, with 2004 P.F. and 2008 P.S.E. certificates (XF 90, SMQ $680.00), this is the highest grade awarded to to date, and only one other shares this grade, in our opinion, this coil waste issue is very undercatalogued in SMQ, and if a stamp with this centering and margins is graded 90, there might not be a better used copy (Image) 375.00
