Scott No. 22; $500.

A MAGNIFICENT GEM USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 1¢ TYPE IIIA ISSUE FROM PLATE 11.

Plate 11 stamps were placed into use at the very end of 1860, approximately six months before new National Banknote stamps were to be issued. These stamps suffered as a rule from rather poor perforating making plate 11 stamps far more difficult to obtain in such exceptional condition.
